A loan of $800 helped to buy land where he can build his own house.


Adrian's story

Adrian is 23 and for the last five years has worked as a primary school teacher in Paraiso de Agua Zarca, instructing rural children in this remote location that can be reached only by traveling 3 hours on horseback. From there, he must travel another 2 hours by bus to the city where his family lives, and he sees his family just once a month. This is his fourth micro-loan and he plans to invest in repairing his parents' home, as its walls are in very bad condition. He is known by all in his community to be a very responsible, honest and hard-working young person. His dream in life is to attain a stable living so that his family can enjoy better conditions and health.
