A loan of $1,175 helped for home improvements.


Francisco's story

Francisco M. M., 52, is married. His wife contributes to household expenses working as a clothing and shoe merchant. They have been in this line of work for 10 years and it’s been the source of income and support for the family.

They currently live in a humble abode. With help from his wife they have built a new home and this month they raised the walls.

They are requesting a loan to finish this project and to move forward with the home improvements.

This investment will provide the family with a much more appropriate and proper home for their socio-economic development.
