Walter Cesar's story

Walter, 50, is a widower with four adult children. The loss of his wife was very difficult for him as he had to be both father and mother to his children, but now they work and study and he supports them through his work as a builder, the income from which has to cover the household expenses.

With this first loan that he is requesting, Walter wants to repair the walls of his house, particularly the part currently made of wood as it has been badly damaged by the rain and now lets in water so it is a priority to repair it so that his children can live in good quality conditions.
