A loan of $675 helped to make improvements to his house.


Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto is from the city of Managua. He is single and he works very hard as a community facilitator, and he is responsible, and has good values and moral principles. He is a university student.

He came to the Ceprodel office to request a loan to improve his house by building a room. He will use this loan to buy materials such as cement, rebar, sand, zinc roofing, wood, and to pay labor. This way he will have a better quality of life.
