A loan of $350 helped to buy cement, cinder blocks, sand, and rebar.


Edwin Jose's story

Edwin is still in his job as a security guard for a business. He has been married for 10 years and has two children, who are bigger every day. They study in a public school because he doesn't have enough income. This is why he supports himself with his job selling fermented milk.

This loan he's requesting is to build a wall on the back part of his house. It's wood and very deteriorated, so he needs to increase the materials he already has by buying cement, cinder blocks, sand, and rebar to secure his property and home.

Because he's making this investment, Edwin wants to set up a dining room in the future to better serve his customers and offer a wider variety of food. It has been difficult to achieve this, but he hopes to do it in time.
