A loan of $375 helped to make electrical installations.


Valeriano's story

Valeriano is 38 years old and comes from Chiapas. He has been located in the city of Nuevo Laredo for more than 20 years, where he married Francisca with whom he has four school-age children.

He is applying for a loan because he needs to do electrical installations at home, since the ones they have are in very poor condition and he wants to avoid an accident. However, for the time being he doesn't have the money needed for making this improvement. He needs to do it as soon as possible since his children are in the need of light at home.

Valeriano has worked as a carpenter for more than 10 years and his business is in his home so that he can watch over his children. His wife sells sweets, soft drinks, and handicrafts in the center of Nuevo Laredo.

The profits he makes from his carpentry business go to paying back the loan and the profits from his wife's business go to paying the expenses of the household and schooling. They want to improve the heritage of their children and give them a safe place with the amenities necessary for their development.
