A loan of $525 helped to purchase cement, metal sheets, planks and beams.

Mario's story

Mário is married and lives in his mother's house. He's 22 years old and has a 5-year-old son who's still too young and therefore doesn't study. Aside from his son, he supports his mother and his nephew who live with him.
With the amount of the loan he'll purchase cement, metal sheets, planks and beams so he can continue building three bedrooms, two living rooms and two porches.
He states that in the future he wishes to go back to school starting next year. He also wishes to finish the construction work that he's been doing on a space provided by his mother which is next door to her house.
He states that he'll repay the loan in a timely fashion and that he'll apply for more loans again so he can achieve his project.
