Luis Concepcion's story

Luis, 55, is a married man. His wife works abroad as a domestic employee because of the current rise in unemployment. He works as a security guard for a shellfish company. He has five children, all adults who work.

He's requesting the loan to begin rebuilding his house of concrete because it's made of very deteriorated wood and corrugated sheet metal. He needs to buy cement, gravel, cinder blocks, sand, rebar, corrugated sheet metal, and wooden beams so he and his family can live in a decent and safe house.
