Juan De Dios's story

Don Juan continues his job as a security guard, working on different shifts in order to financially support himself. He owns a small grocery store managed by his wife, an activity they have started thanks to their savings and to loans form Afodenic. Thanks to his earnings he is able to pay for his 12-year-old son’s school fees. The loan he is currently requesting will be used to have a wall built at the back of his house. He will buy quarry stones, iron, cement, sand, piedrín (a type of building stone) and blocks thanks to the financial support he hopes to continue receiving through the loan, as this will help him succeed in improving his standard of living one step at the time.
