A loan of $1,000 helped to buy doors and windows for his house.

Elvin Ernesto's story

Elvin is 25 years old and lives with his life’s partner.

He is a hardworking young man with much perseverance, who has worked with masonry, agriculture, and everything productive since he was little, so that he could generate income for his family. It was his father who taught him masonry. He arises at 4:00 am to go to work. When there is no construction work, he works on the farm, where he has lots of experience. When he does [farm work] he arises at 5:00 am and travels about 10 km to where his crops are.

Elvin says that he will not shirk and will work as much as he can because his wish is to finish building his home, which he began with a previous loan through Fundación Campo. Once it’s finished, he and his family will move in because they are currently paying rent. He wants his son to be proud of his home and will not rest until his goal is met and he can ensure a better future for his children.

For these reasons Elvin is asking for a new loan, so that he can buy doors and windows and install them in his house. In this way he and his family will be more secure and comfortable in their own home without having to pay rent.
