A loan of $1,500 helped remodeling his room in his parents' home.

Juan Ariel's story

Juan Ariel is 23 years old, single, and lives with his parents in the community of Colomi. He is economically independent from them, however. Juan Ariel is a young worker from a humble family who works in agriculture, earning seasonal income selling potatoes and green broad beans that he grows on his own land in the community. Besides being a farmer, he has also recently become an assistant in a mechanic's shop, though he is currently only working there on the weekends so that he can spend his time wisely between his two different jobs. He has expenses in his line of work like buying agricultural stock and he needs additional money to finish a remodeling job that he started on his room so he can live a bit more comfortably there. His parents don't have a lot of money and so he needs to do this himself. He is very happy that he has been given this opportunity to be able to finish his remodeling project and he also tells us that he always helps his parents because, at times, they are not able to take care of his younger siblings when money is tight and he wants them to have a better future than he has been dealt.
