Carmelo's story

Don Carmelo is 60 years old and lives with his wife and 12-year-old son in San Rafael Oriente, in the department of San Miguel. He works in agriculture, buying and selling livestock from 06:00 to 17:00. He has been involved in this business for 35 years.

At present, he needs a loan to purchase building materials to improve his home. This loan will help him to make his house more safe and comfortable for his family. It will also ensure it is protected from rain during the winter. His primary concern is to provide everything that his family needs in order to progress in life. He wants his son to be able to study and to find a professional job.
