A loan of $725 helped to complete the finishing touches on his house.


Jose Concepcion's story

José Concepción, age 53, is married to Esperanza. They are from San Luis Potosí, and they have two children who are in high school. They have been in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas for over 20 years. José Concepción has been employed in the butcher department of a grocery store for six years. His wife devotes herself to the household chores and the care of their children. They are requesting a loan to make the finishing touches on the exterior of their house. The roof needs to be plastered, painting needs to be done, and a large door needs to be placed in front of his house. He will use part of his salary from work to repay the loan. He wishes to improve his family’s quality of life and to make them safer.
