A loan of $300 helped to buy medicines for one of his children.

Moisés Salomón's story

Moisés is a young man who studied through the sixth grade. His parents had limited resources, so he decided to quit school and start working. He got a job as a masonry assistant and was able to help his parents with the household expenses. Moisés is married and his wife takes care of their two children, ages 2 and 11 months.

Moisés works at a barber shop since he has been learning the trade since he was 11 years old. In addition, he knows a little bit about masonry and carpentry. The place where he works is located 10 kilometers from his house. He leaves his house at 6:30 A.M., boards a bus, and walks a block to his job. His schedule is from 7:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy medicines for one of his children who is sick and needs this treatment. Moisés dreams of having his own barber shop and providing an education for his children so that they can accomplish more than he did. He wants them to be honest and responsible people and not have to suffer the problems that he encountered.
