Francisco Jose's story

Francisco Jose is 52 years old, married, and has five children ages 6, 24, 24, 28, and 30. The youngest attends preschool. Francisco is a security guard for an agro-industrial company and has been for eight years. His wife sells food on foot. They have been living in their current home for eight years and he needs this loan to continue remodeling it. He wants to build a front wall because the current one is destroyed and it represents a danger to his and his family’s safety. Francisco has wanted to do this construction for a year, but he has not been able to do it because of a lack of finances. The previous loan allowed him to replace part of his roof and he will use this loan to buy building materials such as cinder blocks, cement, sand, salt, and stone.
