A loan of $800 helped to buy cement to pour the floor for his house.


Oscar Romeo's story

Oscar is 45 years old. He is married and lives with his 4 children. His wife is in Spain and she supports him with the remittences that she sends home. He has his own home located in San Lorenzo. Oscar has been working in construction for 21 years, building houses. Thanks to this work, he has been able to get ahead with his family. He is requesting the loan to buy cement as he is building a house for himself and his family. This loan will enable him to finish his house and he needs the material to pour the floor. This will improve his quality of life and that of his family. Oscar's dream is to open a business in his home as he needs more income so that his children can finish their education (they are in grade school and high school). San Lorenzo, Honduras - March 2012
