A loan of $350 helps to buy building materials.


Ussene's story

Ussene is 30 years old. He is in a common-law marriage and lives with his wife in his parents' home along with his mother and his siblings. He is the father of a young daughter, and has a sister who is his dependent. He is a laboratory technician at a private company.

The requested loan will be used to buy construction materials such as cement, sand, stone, bricks, metal plates, and beams to continue with the construction of his house.

This is his first loan, and he dreams of having a decent house and a car, and of ensuring his family's support.
