A loan of $425 helped to buy building materials to repair his house.


Togboy's story

Togboy is a very kind man. He lives in a very old house, built by his own father.

Togboy is married and raising six children. Since his wife is a homemaker, he is the sole breadwinner in the family. His children, who are high school students, always ask their parents to repair their house, but Togboy's salary is not sufficient to perform those repairs.

Togboy has been buying and selling food products for a few years. He has his own booth at the local market and his own clientele. The salary he derives from this business is enough to provide his family with food and inexpensive clothing, but not to repair his house. He needs to repair every room, as well as the kitchen and the exterior front wall of his house. To this end, he is requesting a loan of 2,000 somoni to purchase building materials.

Togboy promises to repay his loan on time. He and his children are counting on the help of kind lenders to help them solve their housing situation.
