A loan of $425 helped to buy sheets of Plycem and materials for a doorframe.


Fidel's story

Fidel has three adult children. He was able to raise them with the support of his job as an accountant for a private business. However, over time, he began to work as a taxi driver and now has twenty years of experience with this work. His wife takes care of the home. Fidel is requesting this loan because he wants to put up a false ceiling in his home. Little by little, he works on repairing his home so his grandchildren can inherit it and remember him by it. With this loan, he will buy sheets of Plycem, a type of cement fiberboard, and materials for a doorframe.

His plan for the future is to open an eatery as a business instead of driving a taxi on the streets. He is tired of this work because it wears him out and, sometimes, it is dangerous.
