A loan helped a member to buy cement, sand, bricks, and two dozens of laminate.


El Volcan Group's story

Luis Alejandro, age 23, lives with his life companion and three year-old daughter. He is their sole support.

Alejandrois a very hardworking person who is dedicated to his family. He works informally as an assistant from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., but due to the lack of opportunities, he has not been able to obtain formal employment. The work he does permits him to generate income.

Luis wishes to improve his house, which is deteriorating, but his income does not allow him to make this investment. Therefore he is requesting a loan to buy cement, sand, bricks, and two dozens of laminate, to be able to put a roof on his house and to improve it, to give his family a better quality of life.

Luis Alejandro, together with Luz and Clara, form the communal bank "El Volcan". They are enterprising people, dedicated to their families, and with the common goal of giving their loved ones a better quality of life.
