A loan of $325 helped to build a wall and a stairway up to the second story.

Gabino's story

Gabino’s house needs a stairway up to the rooms he’s building on the second story of the house. He’s asking for the loan just to buy building materials (concrete blocks, cement, sand and rebar) because he’ll do the work himself in his free time from work.

He wants to improve his assets and have a better place to live. The rooms he’s building will be bedrooms for his two children who need their own space in the house.

Gabino plans to repay the loan with the salary he earns as an employee at a shopping center since his wife, Bertha Alicia, will take care of family and school expenses with the profits she earns in her business making and selling traditional Mexican food.
