A loan of $1,000 helped to repair the roof of his house.

José Saúl's story

José is 32 years old and married. He lives with three people. His two children are 2 and 6 years old; only the older child is in school. His wife sells beauty products from a catalog.

José only went to school until second grade. He has been a farmer since he was young, growing vegetables like gourds. The location of his crops is a thirty-minute walk from his house. He has also worked in construction for four years.

The loan will be used to repair the house. They are replacing the roof so they can live more comfortably, without water coming in during the rains.

In the future, José hopes to finish building his house and for his children to finish school.
