A loan of $350 helped to extend his living room.


Hector Manuel's story

Héctor is married and has been living in a government-subsidized house for 12 years. He works as a newspaper seller in one of the main avenues in his town. He has been in this job for nearly nine years and has always worked hard to build up a secure nest egg for when he and his wife reach old age. He has a dream for which he is requesting this loan. He would like to extend his living room, getting rid of a wall. Héctor sees himself in 15 years time, sitting in his living room, reading the newspaper, with his grandchildren running around him.
