A loan of $400 helped to refurbish the exterior of his house.

Omar De Jesús's story

Omar is requesting a loan to do some necessary home improvements; he will plaster and paint the exterior.

Omar has been employed in a factory in the production department for more than five years. His wife, Gloria, helps him out with profits she earns selling clothes outside their house; she’s been in business for two years already.

The loan will be repaid with Omar’s salary since the profits from the business will be used for family expenses; they only have one son who is a year old. They want to improve their main asset and protect the family from illnesses that can arise during the rainy season because the dampness can affect their son’s health.
