A loan of $425 helped to build a fence around his home..


Refugio's story

Refugio is married and has three children. The youngest two are studying at primary school while the eldest attends secondary school. Refugio wants to provide them with the necessary education to achieve an enterprising future.

Refugio is requesting this loan in order to purchase the materials he requires to build a fence around their home, such as bricks, cement, poles and sand. He will carry out this improvement himself, alongside his day job. Refugio has worked for a construction company for more than five years, and will repay the loan from his salary. He wants to increase the value of his land, improve the security of his home and give his family a better quality of life.
