Demesio's story

Demesio has been working for the municipality of Juigalpa for 4 years, earning a living as a cleaner.
He is applying to refinance his 4th loan in order to construct a latrine as the one he has is deteriorating and, as the winter is coming, he wants to have it in place to avoid any inconvenience or illness for his family.
His greatest dream is to be able to give his family better living conditions.
