A loan of $450 helped to erect a front wall.


Álvaro's story

Álvaro’s property needs a front wall. He’s asking for a loan to buy building materials (concrete block, cement, sand and iron rods) since he’ll do the work himself after he gets home from work.

Álvaro wants security and protection for his family because he works nights at a factory and his wife, Xóchitl, and his daughter stay home alone.

He plans to repay the loan with part of the salary he earns at work which is his family’s only source of income since Xóchitl takes care of their daughter and the next child that’s about to be born.
