A loan of $525 helped to purchase cement, windows and sand, to plaster his house and to build part of the surrounding wall.


Joao's story

João is 29 years old and a teacher. He's married and has a daughter who studies. He supports his brother who lives with another family.
With the amount of the loan he intends to purchase cement, windows and sand, to plaster his house and to build part of the surrounding wall.
His plans for the future are to finish the construction work and the wall, acquire a vehicle for family use and make his marriage official.
He states that he likes the services provided by the institution because they help many people, and there are things that he couldn't afford on his salary alone. He also states that he'll repay the loan in a timely fashion.
