A loan of $900 helped to build a wall to protect his property.


Silvio's story

Silvio has been working as a security guard for years. His wife runs a small general store and makes tortillas to sell to help cover all their expenses.
Silvio used his previous loan to start building a bedroom for his house. It is not finished yet, but he plans to keep building and finish it. With this loan, he will start building a wall around his home, as there have been a lot of robberies in his neighborhood and he wants to keep his family safe and protect his property.
His four children are still in school, and he hopes to continue being able to support them to give them better opportunities in life.
