Francisco Javier's story

Francisco Javier is 47 years old and works as a guard for a private security firm. He has three children, aged 18, 17 and 14. Two are at high school and one is studying at university though he is still responsible for them. Along with his wife, Francisco has put in a lot of effort for the family to do well and has given his children the best possible education. Francisco has had six loans, with which he has changed his family's life. He built a new room on his house, giving more space at home and one of his aims is to continue working so as to be able to provide better living conditions for his family and improve the home. Because his salary is not enough for the home improvements, Francisco would like a loan to buy construction materials such as ceramic, bathroom tiles, zinc and cement, among other things.
