A loan of $875 helped to purchase construction supplies (rocks, cement, sand) in order to continue building his house.

Mario's story

Mário is a serviceman and a college graduate. He works 8 hours a day. He's married and has two children who attend elementary school. He supports his family and lives in the military quarter, in a house provided by the government. The money from the loan will be used to purchase rocks, cement and sand, so he can continue building a house of his own. In the future he intends to finish building his house and furnish it. Once he repays the loan he'll apply for other loans again, so that he can accomplish his plans.
