A loan of $425 helped to buy cement, sand, iron, gravel, blocks, and to pay for labor expenses to build a house.

Jose Emilio's story

José Emilio is 35 years old. His wife is a housewife, and his three children are always studying, thanks to his job for the past 3 years working as a bricklayer's assistant for a state institution. His entire family depends on his salary, as he is the only person in the family who works.

He is asking for this third loan to continue building his house. Currently, some parts of the house are covered with zinc panels, which produce a lot of heat during the day. The first thing José Emilio will do is build concrete walls, for which he needs to buy cement, sand, iron, gravel, and blocks. He will also pay for labor costs, all in order to give his family a safe place to live.
