A loan of $350 helped to buy cement, sand, blocks and rebar to install a floor at home.


Freddy De La Cruz's story

Freddy, 37, is married; his wife’s a housewife and they have two children, one attending primary school and the other still too young to attend school. He continues working for the state as a construction assistant; he’s been working for three years. His family depends on his salary since he’s the only one employed. He’s asking for his third loan to buy building materials and supplies like cement, sand, blocks and rebar to install a floor at home since it’s dirt and very dangerous for the children because of the dust and mud produced in the rainy season. It’s worth mentioning that Freddy has been building his house gradually with help from loans that make it possible for him to cover these expenses to provide better living conditions for his children.
