A loan of $725 helped repair his house.


Firmo Roman's story

Firmo is a humble person and works as a cobbler. It has been more than 17 years that he has been working in his profession. He is married and his wife works in the preparation of traditional foods. He has two children who he supports economically and also morally. He has his own house which was built through the strength of himself and his wife, and he is now asking for a loan in order to refurbish a few rooms of his home that have become deteriorated over the years. With this improvement, his children will be more comfortable, and they will have a place to study and relax every night.

Firmo says that it will be a great help to be given this loan, since without it he will not be able to re-do his home and with time it would continue to deteriorate. He wants to take advantage of the dry months, as it will be easier to make progress in finishing his house, and he will feel happy to successfully complete his repairs.
