Vicente Saúl's story

Vicente, 30, is married and has two children. For the past ten years he has worked as a mason. He was interested in this work because his uncle is also a mason. Once he was able to do the work he decided to construct a house by himself. This is how he learned the trade.

The loan requested by Fundación Campo is to buy 150 blocks, 10 bags of cement and with the rest of the credit to cancel the laborers that are unskilled to raise the roof in his kitchen.

He needs to raise the roof since it is now very low and sometimes water seeps through. The situation is worrisome and with the loan he will live better and more comfortably.

Also it will improve because it will not be as hot in the kitchen when cooking.

He plans to build a retention wall because in the back on the house the wall is too close and when it rains hard the ground loosens and damages the wall.
