A loan of $725 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, rods and metal sheets) in order to continue building his house.

Jose's story

José has been a police officer for over 5 years and works by shifts. He finished high school. He's married and has an underage son who's still in preschool. He lives in a house that he owns and supports his family which is also comprised of two stepchildren. The money from the loan will be used to purchase cement, rods and metal sheets so he can continue building his house. He's been doing that gradually, and this time he'll plaster and cover the kitchen and another bedroom, since the house only had two bedrooms and a living room. In the future he intends to finish the house and furnish it. He'll save the funds in order to accomplish his plans.
