A loan of $1,500 helped to buy construction materials for walls, plastering, and tiling.

Santos Javier's story

Santos, a cabinetmaker by trade, makes all types of furniture. His sales have increased with the loans from Afodenic, being a source of growth. He sells his work to suppliers in a market in the capital, the Mercado Oriental, and other work he sells on order. Of his three children, two are students and one is married. His wife always supports him. She is finishing her studies in law, with the goal of helping with the family expenses and setting an example for her daughters.

Today, this new loan will be used to completely repair the small house he bought with money from selling his house, which is where they live currently. He bought the house with money from selling his house, because it was a small plot of land and there wasn't space to expand a room. This is why he sold and bought on the opposite block, which was the bigger plot.

With this loan he will buy construction materials to begin building higher walls and to plaster and tile, until he has a big and decent home for his family.
