A loan of $350 helped to install electricity in his home.


José Aniba's story

José Aniba is originally from the state of Nuevo León, and has been in this city for more than six years. His wife, Teresa, is from the city of Mante Tamaulipas.

José Aniba has worked for three years in a company selling ice cream (frozen sodas) in the streets of the city of Nuevo Laredo, and Teresa makes a living selling clothing and used articles. With this revenue they cover family expenses since they live alone and their children are already married.

They are requesting a loan so they can install the electric cables of the house since they acquired their home a little while ago and it still requires some repairs, but the principal one is electricity so that they can inhabit it.

The income that José Aniba obtains from his job will serve to pay off the loan, since the income from the sales of Teresa's business will serve to pay family expenses.
