A loan of $1,000 helped to buy bricks, cement and iron to build another room onto his house and make his family more comfortable.


Teófilo's story

Teófilo is a master builder and lives with his children in his own house, which is made with bricks and a dirt floor, in the area of Bajo Llojeta in the city of La Paz. He works for more than eight hours per day, as this is his family's only livelihood.

Teófilo needs this loan to buy construction materials. He will buy bricks, cement, and iron to build a room onto his house, improving his quality of life and that of his children.

Teófilo's dream is to finish building his house.
