A loan of $2,000 helped to buy construction materials for his home.


Michael's story

Michael is 42 and lives with two of his children. His house is in extremely poor condition. Among other things, it needs windows, hallway, laundry room, floors, and part of the roof needs replacement.

He needs to repair it before the rains come, as the water comes into the interior of his home every time it rains. He needs a loan of 1 million colons so that he can buy sheet metal roofing, cement, stone, wood and other materials. Obtaining this loan makes him feel very happy.
