A loan of $925 helped to buy building supplies.


Carlos's story

Carlos, 66, is father of five children aged 36, 34, 28, 26 and 22 years; all are independent. He’s retired and he and his wife currently work selling natural refreshments and pastry at home. He’s asking for the loan to continue with home improvements, specifically the front of the house and the roof since he’s wanted to make these improvements to the house since he acquired the property and to date has had difficulty doing so for lack of the necessary income. He’s gradually been able to do some home improvements thanks to loans from this institution and was able to remodel the kitchen and the bedrooms since he has support from his children. When Carlos gets the loan he plans to use it to buy blocks, cement and iron rods, among other building supplies.
