A loan of $400 helped to buy bricks.


Hilario's story

Hilario is 34 years old and is married to Avelina, who is 28 years old. They have four children together and live in their own home made of wood. Hilario has 2 hectares of land planted with coffee plants, cacao, pineapple and fruit trees. He has been doing this work for 21 years. At harvest time he always has the support of laborers, so that there can be more rapid progress in the extraction and selection of his product. For him, his work is very important, since profits from his crops will help pay the cost of his home.

With the requested loan, he will buy cement to build his house with a quality base. But he says that he will not leave agriculture, so that he can improve their quality of life. He is also thankful for the lenders and the support they provide because his loan will help him improve his home.

This is his 7th loan and knows that the money will be very useful in the progress of his home. At the same time he thanks the lenders financiers for their confidence. In his communal bank, he is the man who brings ideas to help progress his community group.

With the 1,000 soles he will purchase brick for construction of his home.
