Gilmar's story

Gilmar P. Guzmán is 42 years old, has six children, and has been married for 18 years. Because of the number of children he has, his house is too small for them to be comfortable. For this reason, he is asking for a loan to add on to his home. His income from his taxi business is low, so it is impossible for him to carry out this project alone.

He says that his greatest desire for the future is to be able to add enough space to his house that all his children can live comfortably and not suffer from a lack of adequate housing as he did.
