A loan of $1,500 helped to do the finishing work on his house.

Alfredo's story

Alfredo, 28, is single and lives in a rural community, Primera Candelaria, to the north of Colomi. The young man works in agriculture growing potatoes, "papa lisa" [a tuber], and beans on a plot of land he inherited from his parents. This way he earns a living to live comfortably.

Alfredo appeared in person to request a loan to invest in the finishing work on the construction of the ground floor of his house. He spent his savings building the whole house and needed money to complete the finishing work.

Ultimately Alfredo was very happy to get the loan because finally his dream will come true, to have his own house finished with all the requirements so he can live happily.
