A loan of $625 helped to buy cement, sand, bricks, and iron rods for rebuilding a wall in his home.


Ruben's story

Sr. Rubén is 39 years old and lives in southern Honduras with his wife and children. He supports them in each of their activities. Rubén has been providing taxi services in the community where he lives for 23 years. His business requires him to travel since he works in the transportation sector.


The loan he is requesting will be used to buy construction materials such as cement, sand, bricks, and iron rods so that he can rebuild a wall in his house. This will improve his quality of life and that of his family. He expects the impact of his loan will improve his home. At the same time, he hopes to improve service to each of his customers who require transportation every day.


The future plans of Don Rubén include continuing to grow each day in his business and generating more income so that he and his family can have a better quality of life.
