Donald Antonio
Donald Antonio C. R. is married with two school-age children. He has been working hard as an operator for five years. One of the challenges Donald is facing today is that he needs to improve the conditions of his home; because of the poor conditions in which he lives, he has made the decision to begin work on the place.

With this goal, Donald is applying for a loan from CEPRODEL to purchase construction materials, such as sand and cement. To complete his home improvements, he is applying Repello (a protective coating that prevents mold and staining) to his house. Through this project, he will give his children better living conditions. It is important to point out that through the completion of this work, Donald will be able to provide his family with a decent place to live, and with all the necessary conditions for his children's development.
