Hermes Felipe's story

Hermes is a very hard working man. He administers his own business which is a room rental and driving a taxi. He is married and the father of three daughters.

He started his business with his own initiative and savings from a previous job. Thanks to loans he has been making home improvements because everything, especially the basic monthly food needs, has gone up in price. He has managed to stay even thanks to the room he rents because the taxi fares have been low.

With this loan he will improve the roof because he needs to improve this aspect of his house for his family’s wellbeing. Thanks to the loans from the institution he is accomplishing it. He will buy ten sheets of zinc metal, twelve metal beams, four sacks of cement, a large container of paint among others.
