A loan of $1,450 helped build his home.

Emilio's story

Mr. Emilio Amaya Tarrico is 30 years old, single, without kids and has an elementary school level education. His parents' limited resources prevented him from continuing his studies. He began to work from a very young age helping with crops. With his savings, he purchased a motorcycle which he uses in his work as a moto-taxi driver. He works everyday and at the moment, he lives in his family's home in which he pays no rent but helps them pay for utilities.

In the time he has been working, he has used his savings to purchase an urban lot in Ivirgarzama. He has always dreamed of having his own home which is why he is requesting a loan to begin the construction and become independent. With this, he will begin to make his home where he will be able to live, grow and improve his quality of life.
