A loan of $1,000 helped to buy cinderblocks, cement, sheet metal, and other materials to remodel his home.


Marío Dagoberto's story

Mario, 50, lives with his mother. For 14 years, he has worked as an administrative assistant for the town council, always showing discipline and commitment to his work. To get to his workplace, he travels five blocks on bicycle. His work schedule is from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. The loan that he is applying for is to buy cinderblocks, cement, sheet metal, and other materials to remodel his home. With this investment, his and his family's residence in the home will be improved to that it is more pleasant and so that the rain does not damage the walls of the home. One of his dreams is to set up a store that sells basic goods like rice, beans, and corn. With the earnings, he hopes to continue helping his family like he has done up until now.
