A loan of $450 helps to buy building materials.


Samuel's story

Samuel is 36 years old. He is the father of two young children. One of them is in elementary school. He is in a common-law marriage and lives in his own home.

He plans to buy building materials with the loan, such as cement, sand, and stone to continue with his home-building project.

This is his sixth loan. The previous ones were used for the same project. His biggest dream is to finish with his project, furnish it, and to get married officially.
