A loan of $1,500 helped to repair the roof of his home.


Luis Enrique's story

Luis is a Christian and lives at home with his parents. He has worked in Christian media and communications for two years now. Luis and his parents are poor and his parents are getting older and do what they can to support themselves. His mother sells empanadas and sodas in a market, but this only sustains them day to day with their son's help. They live in a rustic home where they have problems with the roof tiles, and now that it is rainy season the water is coming down inside of the house. Since they barely make enough to survive, they don't have the money on hand to repair the roof, but their son would be able to pay it back in installments. This is why the family needs this type of help, to improve their quality of life and get through the rainy season without problems.
