A loan of $400 helped to repair his roof.


Wilber Eli's story

Wilber lives with his mother and two sisters, for whom he works hard to get ahead. He has been living here for three years but he is very well known in the area and had good personal references. He wants to have better living conditions so he wants to replace the roof on his home. The metal has holes in it and it’s been a long time since it’s been replaced. He is asking for a loan to buy galvanized metal sheets and nails and lumber so he can do the work. In this way he can be more protected from the inclement weather and the sun.
