A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase cement, sand, iron, blocks and quarried stone.


Sergio's story

Mr. Sergio is married. His wife is a homemaker and they have a young son who depends on him, as does his entire family. He is the only one that works and provides a livelihood for his family.

With much effort Sergio managed to build the family home, made of boards and zinc sheeting with an earth floor. His goal is to improve the condition of their house, therefore he is requesting a loan to help him achieve this by building with quarried stone and cement. He has already started this process, and hopes to complete it little by little.
