A loan of $425 helped to buy zinc for the roof of his house.

Marlon's story

Marlon, 28 years old, is married and lives in the region of El Recreo. His wife is a homemaker, and they have a 6-year-old son. Marlon is a responsible person, honest and very dedicated to his work. He has worked for Inta as a day laborer for more than six years. Through his own work and effort he has been able to make himself deserving of his own home.

He is asking for this loan with the intention of buying forty sheets of zinc, since the roof is in poor condition and he wants to repair it before winter begins. His dream is to give comfort to his family and enjoy good health.
