A loan of $900 helped to purchase materials to remodel his house.


Antonio's story

Antonio is a single, 33-year-old man who lives with his three children, one boy and two girls, in Colonia Buena Vista, in the El Calvario Sololá neighborhood of Sololá. He is a builder; he chose this trade because he was working in agriculture years ago, but he realized that his income was getting lower all the time. So he decided to opt for this work. He continued to gain experience through some family members who encouraged him to keep going, thereby contributing to the family's finances.

Antonio has twelve years of experience in this type of work; through what he does, he earns an acceptable income. He is requesting a loan of 7,000.00 GTQ to purchase materials like lime, sand, gravel, and cement to remodel his house. His dream is to build two cinderblock rooms to provide a better quality of life to his family.
