Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge Alberto is 24 years old, single and originally from the town of Chinandega, which is in the west of the county. He is hard-working and responsible and managed to complete secondary school, though he had to start work from a young age and study at the same time. One of Jorge's biggest dreams is to become a professional so as to be able to offer the family that he hopes to have a good future. Jorge earns a living as a bus conductor but is applying for a loan in order to make some improvements to his mother's house, which is where hr lives. Jorge one day wants to buy his own home. This loan will be used to buy building materials for two rooms, such as zinc, wood, plywood, nails, sand, cement and more.
