A loan of $475 helped to buy school supplies.

Alejo Jose's story

Alejo, age 58, lives in Guayaquil. Fifteen years ago he started his profession as a bricklayer. Little by little he was getting known by his customers of the jobs that he did like building houses.

He currently continues with his business because he supports his household. He has four children, and one of them is 15 years old. That is why he wants the loan in order to buy him school supplies (his son appears in the photo). He does not have enough with his income to buy them.

In the future he wants to improve his home and his son’s education.
