A loan of $425 helped to buy construction materials to finish closing in a room and improve his living conditions.


Dagoberto Margarito's story

Dagoberto continues providing his taxi service. He's making a better profit since it's his own taxi, although he is earning less now since gasoline is very expensive. He is charging a little more per ride, since demand is low, to earn a daily living. His wife is a housewife. Two of his children are married, and one is in school. For Dagoberto, improving his home is his priority, since through the [prior] loan that was granted, he was able to make improvements to his taxi; with this new loan, he will finish closing in a room, buy a door, and lay tile. He will buy ten sheets of Plycem [a cement fiber plywood substitute], nails, a door, sand, and cement to start the work, with the objective of improving his living conditions.
