Oscar De Jesus's story

53-year-old Oscar de Jesús is from the municipality of El Realejo--a very poor village where the main economic activity is [centered] on livestock. Oscar is married with two children, aged 20 and 16. He works as a laborer.

Oscar is requesting the loan to make improvements to his home, which include plastering and finishing the interior walls of the house. [These are] improvements that he has not been able to carry out due to a lack of capital. Since his salary does not allow him to invest in the previously mentioned improvements, his only way [to accomplish them] is to [request] a loan.

In the photo, Oscar is pointing out the improvements that he would like to make.
