A loan of $425 helped to purchase cement, sand, rocks and iron in order to start building his house.


Marciano's story

Marciano is 29 years old and works as a supervisor for a security company. He's been married for three years and doesn't have children yet. He lives in a rented house and he has acquired a space near the place he rents where he intends to begin his construction work.
He states that with the amount of the loan he'll purchase cement, sand, rocks and iron so he can get the construction work started.
His plans for the future are to furnish the house, put up a wall around it and purchase a vehicle.
He states that he'd like to finish the repayments and apply for more loans again so that he can achieve his plans.
