Evaristo De Jesus's story

Señor Evaristo is 48 years old. He is married, and his wife works as a teacher in a school. They have two daughters who depend on them who are in primary and secondary school. He has worked as a driver for a private business for 9 years. With these incomes from very low salaries, they have managed to advance, covering the various basic expenses of the household. He is applying for this loan to direct it toward improvements in their home, to construct walls to divide the rooms and a wall to surround their house, which will help his family by offering them better privacy, comfort, and also security, since in the area of their patio they have only a fence, which is not secure. To begin this work, he needs to buy materials such as cement, sand, blocks, iron, and gravel and pay for labor.
