A loan of $1,275 helped to purchase ceramic tile, blocks, sand, cement and iron to build a small pantry.


Jose Vidal's story

Don José continues to work as a welder and his wife to sell food, so they can continue improving their dwelling. Four of his children are married and two are single. One of the latter works and the youngest one attends secondary school. Previously Don José was a semi-truck driver but because the salary was so low, he quit and began working with welding, which he learned to do when he was young. For him, his priority is home improvement, which he has undertaken for his family’s well-being. Today, with this new funding, he will be able to install ceramic tile in his living room and he will build a small pantry in the kitchen for better hygiene. The loan will help him meet his expenses.
