A loan of $1,025 helped to complete a side security wall.

Salvador's story

Salvador has lived for more than 15 years in the city of Nuevo Laredo and he has worked as a bricklayer (in housing construction) for more than 30 years. He is requesting a loan to purchase construction materials for the side wall of his home since it is currently very low and so he wants to make it higher in order to provide better security for his family. Salvador will see to carrying out the improvement himself in the hours additional to his construction jobs that he has at the moment.

With the income that he obtains from his jobs Salvador plans to pay back the loan as his older children will help him with the family expenses and the school expenses of three children currently studying in middle school and high school.
