Segundo Asuncion


A loan of $550 helped to buy materials to make bricks.


Segundo Asuncion's story

Segundo, 29, is single and lives with his family in the San José district, 20 minutes from Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque department.

Segundo makes adobe bricks (mud blocks that are the material used to build houses, made of mud, clay, and straw) and he sells them to make money to support his family.

He would like to make more bricks but he needs more materials and that is why he is asking for a loan of 1500 new sols.
