A loan of $1,200 helped to buy cement, sand and floor tiles to finish the construction of a room.

Mario Ricardo's story

Mario lives with his mother and siblings. He is a teacher at a school close by to where he lives. He has been working there for 8 years, Monday through Friday. He also manages a bicycle shop.

Several months ago, he began the construction of a room with the help of a loan. Actually, he is resorting to asking for help again so that he can finish the construction work, fine-tuning details in the room for which he has to pay for more labour, buying cement, sand and floor tiles.

His goal is to make use of the loans which he will repay punctually while he remains employed. With this, he wants to have a decent and comfortable home for his family.
