A loan of $850 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, metal sheets and rods) so he can continue building his house.


Salvador Marcos's story

Salvador is a serviceman. He's married and has nine children, four of whom are still under his responsibility. He lives in military housing and he's 54 years old.
With the money from the loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (cement, metal sheets and rods) so he can continue building his house.
In the future he hopes to set up a grocery store where he can sell products that are household staples. This will increase his family's income and also serve renovation purposes.
He states that his challenge is repaying the loan in a timely fashion and ensuring his children's education.
