A loan of $1,050 helped for cement, sand and stone.

Jose Luis's story

José, 22, works as a guard for a company called “Puerto Limpio.” He works very early on rotating shifts sometimes at dawn and other times during the day.

He is currently separated from his wife so is living with his mother and brother in an urban zone called Suburbio which is notable because most of its residents are low-income merchants. He wants to have a business in the future and not depend on an employer because he wants to earn money to support his newborn, 11 month old, son.

To help his mother have a better build house (the house appears in the photo) he wants to use the loan to buy building materials and supplies like cement, concrete blocks, plaster.

His hope is to continue working to provide a good life for his son and to help his mother with the house.
