A loan of $1,200 helped to plaster the walls, install tile flooring upstairs and make improvements to a rental room.


Hermes Felipe's story

Hermes is doing better because the number of his tenants has increased since his business is renting rooms and driving a taxi. He is building a two story house that he’s almost finished with. With the loans he’s been improving the rooms. His children continue in school and his wife’s a housewife.

With this new loan, Hermes will improve the roof on one of the rental rooms providing good housing service and will also plaster the rooms on the second story and install tile flooring since these are the rooms for his personal use.

For him, it is of great satisfaction to be able to continue improving his house for his family’s wellbeing because with much dedication and effort he works daily driving his taxi to make his payments and cover personal expenses since everything is so expensive now
