A loan of $525 helped to buy materials like metal plates, beams and iron, and to pay for labor.


Raul Alfredo's story

Raul is 52 years old and lives in a house he owns with his wife and their two children. He has made a living by selling fruits and vegetables for the last 9 years. His business is located in his home. He has a large clientele as he sells at a good price and his products are fresh. With his earnings he is able to cover some of his household expenses.

Raul is asking for a loan to be able to buy materials like metal plates, beams and iron, and to pay for labor in order to put a new roof on his home. The roof he has is already very damaged after so much time without repair, as what he earns isn't enough to be able to fix it. This way his family will be able to live in their home more securely.
