A loan of $450 helped to buy construction materials (beams, metal sheets, cement, sand, stone, etc.).


Bernardo's story

Bernardo is married and is the father of six children, two of whom are still in school. He lives in his own home with his family and also supports his grandmother and one nephew who live with him.

He is a metal worker by profession. With his current loan, he will buy construction materials (beams, metal sheets, cement, sand, stone, etc.) to continue work on his home.

In the future, he hopes to empower his children to finish college. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans in the future. His main challenge is to finish his home to give more comfort to his family.
