A loan of $1,450 helped to repair his home.


Marcelino's story

Marcelino is 25 years old, single and lives with his parents in a very humble home. Since he was very young he has worked in farming, where he learned to grow products like potatoes, onions, peanuts and beans. Marcelino not only works but he also cares for his father, who because of his age suffers from an illness that keeps him in bed every day. Recently there has been heavy rain in the community, which has damaged their home and created terrible living conditions because of leaks. Marcelino is requesting the loan to repair and improve the home so it can withstand the weather since the rainy season is just beginning. This loan will help Marcelino and his parents very much in improving their living conditions.
