A loan of $900 helped to repair the electrical system in his house.


Misael's story

Misael, 34, has worked as a line production operator in a factory in his town for a year. He is divorced and lives with a 3 year-old child that his wife left in his care. He wants to be a good father, and he dreams of seeing his son grow and being able to provide him with a university degree. This way, his son could have a better quality of life than the one they have now. Misael has a problem with his house. The electric wires in his house are of very bad quality, and they frequently short out and cause the lights to go out. He is requesting a loan so that he can rewire his house and avoid the short circuits that are damaging his electrical appliances.
