Usulután, El Salvador / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase 50 yards of mesh fencing, 150 tubes, and other construction materials to build a wall around his house.


Edgar Alexander's story

Edgar is 42 years old, married with one child. He learned the construction trade when he was 20 years old, with his father-in-law when he was his assistant in all of his work. Edgar studied until the ninth grade, and seeing that he could not get a better job than as a construction assistant, where he earned very little, and recognizing the need to support his family, he decided to learn to work as a construction worker himself and earn a little more. Now, each time that he gets a job, he employs others as assistants and transports them in his pick-up truck, as sometimes the jobs are very far from home.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to purchase 50 yards of mesh fencing, 150 tubes, and other construction materials to build a wall around his home (he has already started building it). This will provide him and his family with more security inside their home. Because he leaves for work and his family stays home alone, building this wall will leave him feeling more comfortable that nothing will happen to his family.

He is planning to save up to build another house, so that his family can expand in the future and can live very comfortably with enough space.
