Juan Rafael's story

Juan Rafael, 46, is a head of household with two beautiful children, only one of whom is in school and in his care. For several years he has worked as an accountant. His wife is a secretary and helps cover household expenses. Together they have been able to renovate their home little by little with their savings and the help of micro-loans. For a third time he is requesting a loan through Afodenic to continue home improvements. He will finish with the tile and front of the house. The construction materials he needs to begin work are: bags of cement, blocks, sand, gravel, wire, and iron among other items. In an effort to increase his income he has decided to buy a taxi which will improve his economy so he can pay off debts.
