A loan of $825 helped to buy quarry stone, cement, iron, etc.


German Antonio's story

German is 42 years old and lives with his partner, who is a homemaker. He supports three children. This client has been working for City Hall as a sanitation worker for fourteen years. He is requesting a new loan to purchase construction material like quarry stone, cement, iron, etc. He wants to gradually buy everything he needs in order to build his house with concrete, because currently it is made of wood and zinc. This loan will allow them to realize their dream of having a safe and beautiful home for the whole family.
