A loan of $1,000 helped to build a water tank.


Ariel's story

Ariel is twenty-two years old, single, and has no children right now. He provides Internet service. His Internet cafe is located in the María Auxiliadora neigborhood. His business is going well, especially because it is located in a strategic site in the neighborhood. This loan is the first that he has had with Emprender. Ariel lives in the Sacaba neighborhood, where water is scarce. Most of the time, he purchases water from tankers that offer water in each neighborhood at a reasonable price. He is requesting this loan so he can build a water tank to be able to have reserves. One of his motivations to build a water tank is to be able to store and distribute water. He also plans to set up pipes to provide water to rooms such as the bathroom, the shower, and the kitchen. This is important because the water tankers only come once a week, and often his family is without water, which is a necessary element in every home. With the construction of a water tank, Ariel will improve his quality of life, and for this reason he is grateful for the opportunity Emprender is offering him.
