A loan of $350 helped to build a garage to keep his minibus in.

Elbis Israel's story

Elbis is 44 years old and lives with his wife and three children.

He entertains at religious events in churches in nearby communities. He has provided this service, which he learned from a cousin, for eight years. He had bought various musical instruments for which he needed a means of transport. For this reason he requested a prior loan from Fundación Campo to buy a minibus. He repaid that loan very punctually.

Currently, Elbis is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo to build a garage in which to keep his minibus, since at night he leaves it in the open and it runs the risk of being stolen. With the loan, Elbis would insure that his minibus is safe, since he earns his daily living with it for his family. He would not have to keep checking on the minibus throughout the night to make sure it was safe.

Elbis hopes that his children will be professionals and he hopes to send them to school with income earned from the minibus. He also hopes to able to buy another newer one.
