A loan of $425 helped to buy 20 sheets of zinc and supports.


Luis Felipe's story

Luis Felipe is 38 years old and married. His wife always helps him to support their three children by working as a stylist. He works as a master builder but finds it unstable as he receives contracts rather than a fixed salary.

He has been taking out loans to improve his house. He needs this loan to change the roof on the back part of the house. He will buy 20 sheets of zinc and supports as the roofing is old. In this way he will, little by little, build his house which is one of his main aims despite the economic obstacles and health problems he has faced. Regardless, he has always managed to get his family ahead.
