Paulino's story

Paulino is 40 years old. He makes a living building and remodeling homes. He is a construction worker and contractor. He lives in the city of El Torno. This is the first loan he has taken out through the communal bank. Paulino will use this loan to buy construction materials and some tools that will allow him to do his work efficiently, since he already has contracts to complete. The reason he has taken out this loan is so that he can continue improving his work. He will use the benefits from the loan to buy household appliances for his family. Paulino is a very hard working person and is happy for the opportunity he is being provided with through this loan, as his construction business is his only source of income.
