A loan of $700 helped buy cement, rods and sand to continue the construction of his house.


Matias's story

Matias is in the military, works 8 hours a day, is married and the father of 4 children who go to primary school and high school. He lives in the military neighborhood with his family whom he supports.

Matias has a small plot of land provided by the state to all military personnel where he is building a small house where he can live with his family. For this reason, the funds from this loan will be used to buy cement, rods and sand to continue the construction of this house.

In future he hopes to build a house with 4 rooms on the same plot of land. Paying off the loan is his biggest challenge as it is a great responsibility which he needs to overcome in order to solicit further loans.
