A loan of $775 helped to buy cement, blocks, iron, wire, ceramics, sand and adhesives to stick the ceramics together, and to pay for manual labor.


Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is 48 years old. He has performed different types of work and continues working as a radio technician with 22 years of experience in this field. His wife always helps him with her work as a maid because they long to see their five children, especially three of them that are still little and go to school, become great professionals. He has used all of his loans for better infrastructure in their home. This time his objective is to continue improving his house. He will put ceramics and construct a room, but to do so he needs to buy cement, blocks, iron, wire, ceramics, sand, adhesives to stick the ceramics together, and payment for manual labor. Little by little Juan will fulfill his dream of having a house with all of the necessary conditions to live with his family.
