A loan of $825 helped to build a perimeter fence.


Jose Jaime's story

José Jaime is married and has two small children. His wife works at home and is a general employee of a business. He lives in one of the farther neighborhoods from the city, where insecurity persists at all times. As such, he needs help to build a fence around his house, so his children will have better protection and a higher quality of life. While chatting with him, he tells us: In today's day it is not fencing the house is a trend but it is a necessity; one never knows what can happen in an unsafe situation.

Building the fence that he has planned will be a large benefit for him and his family, and he will be able to leave his house more peacefully.
