A loan of $475 helped to buy materials and hire labor to construct an enclosing wall around his house.

Ramón's story

Ramón has been in this locality for 20 years, and ever since he arrived, he has fought to obtain his house. His first loan was to acquire his home and now, since he has it, he wants to invest in it. This will make two loans that he has obtained from our institution. His desire is that someday it will be his children’s inheritance. His children do not live with him, but rather with his wife, from whom he has been separated for several years. He has the idea of building an enclosing wall around his house, since there is a lot of insecurity today. He lives alone, and his biggest fear is that one day someone robs him of all the things that he has acquired with the effort of all these years.
