A loan of $600 helped to buy materials for his work like trowels and hammers, etc.


Anonymous's story

This man, age 51, lives in Orquídeas (Guayaquil). He has always been a bricklayer. However, upon contracting the illness, which is PVVS (patient living with HIV/AIDS), he fell into a depression.

However, after that he thought about having only one life. He started to build his house, and he started to grow in his profession as a bricklayer in order to enjoy life.

He does his bricklaying work alone. He works when his services are sought out, and that is how he manages to support himself.

Age makes his work difficult as well as the large amount of competition there is now.

He is not married, and he has no children.

He will use the loan to buy materials for his work like trowels and hammers, etc.

His dream is that no one turns their back on him because of his illness.
