A loan of $350 helped to buy cement, steel, concrete blocks and stone to construct a wall around his home.

Roberto's story

Don Roberto is a married man who lives with his wife and three children in the neighborhood Memorial Sandino in Managua. He works very hard as a taxi driver, which is a little dangerous in the area where he lives, but it is his only source of income.

He is seeking his eighth loan for the household improvements that he is making bit by bit. On this occasion he will construct another section of a wall around his home. The wall is currently made up only of laminated zinc sheets. To complete the work he needs to buy cement, steel, concrete blocks and stone. This will bring improved security and tranquility to him and his family.
