Juan Carlos
Juan is a very hardworking man who is dedicated to his family of five children. He learned to repair household electrical goods and welding when he was young, and also buys and sells vehicles. With his savings he bought a vehicle that has been circulating. He buys and sells and gets a good profit.
He works hard in the electrical repair business, and when not doing that he welds to be able to buy his basic food, and he has the help of his wife who works as a domestic maid. And above all, the support of the loan institution through 12 loan cycles has enabled him to improve his home and build it from concrete.
With this loan, he will finish making the porch, put in a proper floor over the current earth floor, and improve the roof, which is in bad condition. For him, it is a pleasure every day to improve his family's well being, which working with Afodenic has made possible.
