A loan of $350 helped to erect pillars.

Mario's story

Mario’s married and has 8 children but only one still lives with him since all the others are independent and he’s the only one still in school. They live in a house of their own occupying just two bedrooms with brick walls and a dirt floor. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Alto Llojeta zone.

He only went to secondary school and currently earns income working as a bricklayer more than ten hours daily since he must cover food, education and basic utility costs with the little he earns.

He needs the loan to build pillars at home because he wants to provide more security for his family. Mario’s dream is to finish building his house to improve his quality of life.
