A loan of $725 helped to buy construction materials.


Damian's story

Damián is 59 years old. He is married with three children who are 12, 7 and 5 years old. Damián makes a living working in construction. He works on various construction jobs in the city of Joronchito. This loan is the first he has taken out through the communal bank. He will use the loan to make home improvements, for which he needs to buy construction materials. The reason he has requested a loan is because he wants to improve the rooms in his house. Damián faces challenges in his business, mainly the dependence he has on each construction job as he has to complete the contracts he has for each house he has been hired for. He will continue using the profits from his business to improve his home, to buy supplies to make a concrete foundation. His goal is to be able to see the construction of his home finished.
