A loan of $350 helped to build a room onto his house.


Juan's story

Señor Juan is 73 years old and has been a widower for eight years. He is a father to eight children who have all moved out of the family home. For years, he worked hard to provide his children with an education, neglecting his own financial wellbeing to instead focus on ensuring that his children received a good education. He never imagined he would become old and lack somewhere safe to live out the last years of his life.

Juan is requesting help to build a concrete room so that he isn't affected by bad weather. He works for the town council sweeping the streets, and would like to give his thanks in advance for any support you can give him to help him build a room and have a dignified place to spend his last days in the future.
