A loan of $300 helped tools for home improvements.


Alejandro Jose's story

Alejandro is a hard-working married father of two. He lives in the Linda vista neighbourhood, and together he and his family built his house out of concrete. They both work and save up to make home improvements. Alejandro has worked in construction for several years; he began as an assistant and learned from there. He now makes more money and has a steady job maintaining the business. He needs to make improvements to his house, such as laying a floor, making room divisions, and improving the doors. His job is not easy; he is tired. Luckily, he can count on the help of his wife. He has bought materials such as flooring and cement for the house, but he still needs more material and he hopes to get the improvements done soon in order to have better hygiene in his home. With this loan, he will buy tools to help him with his daily work, such as: a handsaw, a plane, and a welder, among others. These cost a lot and he has not managed to buy them on his own; thus, he will buy them with this loan.
