A loan of $675 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, bricks, rods and sand) so he can continue building his house.


Arlindo Lucas's story

Arlindo is married and has four children who attend elementary and high school. He lives in a house that he owns. Aside from his family he also supports two nephews who live with him. He has been a librarian for over 13 years and works 8 hours a day. On weekends he provides services as an electrician.
With the amount of the loan he'll purchase rods, cement and sand so he can continue building his house.
His plan is to expand his electrician services.
He pledges to repay the loan in a timely fashion and apply for more loans again so he can accomplish his projects.
