A loan of $575 helped to buy construction materials.


Gustavo Humberto's story

Gustavo lives with his family in the town of Ticuantepe in the populous neighborhood of Juan Ramón Padilla. He has gotten ahead to achieve his biggest dream of finishing his house so he can give his wife and children better living conditions. He works as a bricklayer.

His biggest difficulty is he can't raise the funds he needs to buy the materials all at once. With the loan he has received he'll buy cement, sand, gravel, cinder blocks, and metal sheeting to continue with his dream.

He's grateful for the support he has received from AFODENIC and Kiva.
