A loan of $600 helped to buy materials such as metal sheeting, iron, balconies, etc.

Evaristo Joaquin's story

Evaristo, who is 64, lives with his wife in their own home. He has had a sewing workshop for 35 years, which has allowed him to gain experience in all types of sewing. What he earns just covers the household expenses. Evaristo wants to complete building work on his house but his earnings are not sufficient. Therefore, he is applying for a loan to buy the necessary materials such as metal sheeting, iron and balconies and to pay contractors to carry out improvements on his home, such as completing the installation of the roof and putting in doors and windows. This will allow him and his wife to live in greater security.
