A loan of $850 helped to purchase cement, sand and rods in order to continue the construction work.


Arnaldo's story

Arnaldo is a widower and has three children who attend elementary school. He's 35 years old and has been a vendor for over 10 years. He works 10 hours a day. With the amount of the loan he'll purchase cement, sand and rods in order to continue the construction work. In the future he intends to build a house for his children for when they're grown up. He states that he'll repay the loan in a timely fashion so he can request more loans again.
