A loan of $700 helped to buy building supplies.


Jose Dolores's story

José Dolores is a builder by trade though he has future plans to set up a small grocery stall in order to make more income. He will run the store with his wife's support. He also plans to improve his home since it is starting to show signs of wear and tear. José Dolores is a hard-working and unassuming man who works hard to support his family since the building trade is such that sometimes there is a run of work and other times jobs are scarce.

José Dolores will use his loan to buy building supplies such as cement, iron, sand, beams, blocks, quarry stone and other materials he needs to build a room. He is grateful to the financial institution for their support in improving his home and his standard of living.
