Martín's story

Martin is a 29 year old young man. He is married and has five daughters. They live in Caserío Los Yaxón, in the village of El Tablón, town of Sololá, department of Sololá. Martin is a construction worker and builds houses both in his community and in the surrounding area. He learned this trade from his father because as a child, he helped him build. With this job, he generates the income he needs to support his wife and daughters. As a responsible father that is concerned about his family’s life, he wishes to improve his housing conditions.

In addition to working as a construction worker, he is engaged in farming and this also helps him generate complimentary income to support his family. He is requesting a loan of $525.00 to purchase cables and wire for installation of electricity in his home. His dream is to improve his housing conditions by applying finishes in his home and building a retaining wall.
