Josue Elias's story

Josué lives in Entre Ríos. He has a dependent son he cares for and for whom he works every day in order to get ahead. He works selling salads, fast-food and other snacks in his snack bar. His economic activity is located on a corner of the square in a strategic spot frequented by many passers-by that come to enjoy his products.

Josué owns an urban lot that he bought with much work effort where he wants to build his house since he’s currently living under the ‘anticrético’ modality [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you]. This is why he’s asking for the loan to carry out the construction project since he does not have enough money to do so. With this loan, Josué will be able to reach his set goal of owning a house in which to live comfortably.
