Dionicio Guadalupe's story

By profession, Dionicio is a taxi driver with over 22 years’ experience. He owns the taxi. His children are adults and his wife is a clothing and shoe merchant.

Dionicio has improved his house’s infrastructure quite a bit. With previous loans he managed to finish the walls and with savings and part of the Afodenic loans also the house itself which he’s quite advanced with. What he’ll do with the next loan is to install sixty meters of tile leaving only small details still pending to improve his family’s conditions.
