A loan of $400 helped to buy construction materials.


Juan Jose's story

Juan is a humble man and a hardworking businessman. His life partner works for a private business, this being additional income.

His project is to improve his quality of life with the profits obtained from his business. His business is the entertainment service of billiards, and at the same time he offers food, fried snacks, drinks, and other products.

When being without work some time ago made it difficult to survive, the opportunity of starting his business came up. This is a greater source of economic income that, up to now, has allowed him to work on improving the infrastructure of his home.

He will use the requested loan to buy construction materials: cement, cinderblocks, iron, rods, sand, gravel, wire, nails, and wood planks. He will build the south wall of his house and put in the floor for the business, since it's made of dirt, which is detrimental to the health of his customers and his family.
