A loan of $825 helped to buy blocks, cement, sand and iron, and to hire workers.

Jose Tomas's story

José has three adult children who study and work to pay for their education. José and his wife continue to run their small business selling used clothing and he rents out the van he bought to earn extra income to put food on the table.

He is requesting a loan to build concrete walls in his house since the old sheet metal is wearing out and does not provide protection and safety. He needs to buy blocks, cement, sand and iron and to hire workers. This investment will improve his family's living conditions. He is very grateful for the loan.
