Yonis Alberto's story

Yonis is a young man of 24. He is married but is not a father yet. He works as a shop assistant in a store, as does his wife. He has been working in the store for five years. Yonis is a young man with limited financial means who would like to make progress and improve the condition of his home. He has also worked in construction and has gotten ahead in life despite the financial circumstances of his family. Currently, Yonis' home is made from wood and he has experienced problems with sun and water. Now that he is married, he would like to do better for both himself and his wife. With the support of his wife, he would like to build a room from concrete. Yonis does not have the capital he needs to start this work but, through Afodenic, he will be able to buy construction supplies (stone, blocks, sand, cement, iron, nails and planks) and start building his room. He is happy that he will be able to start making this improvement as it will provide him with better hygiene and safety.
