Melvin Leonel's story

Melvin Leonel, 26, has been working as an elementary school teacher in the Río Plata neighborhood for 7 years. He’s single and has no children. He’s asking for his second loan to pay fees to legalize his professional degree and to buy a computer. Since he still has no family he covers his personal and educational expenses with his salary. He also works in his parents’ farm planting tubers and root vegetables to earn additional annual income. He’s very well known in his community as a responsible, hardworking person who very much wants to improve.
