A loan of $1,500 helped to construct a wooden house.

Federico's story

Federico has been married for more than 17 years and has two dependent children of different ages. They are in primary and secondary school. They are a humble family that has lived in the community of Colomi for 6 years.

They work in agriculture and with their seasonal income, sell potatoes, tuber vegetables, variations of potatoes, and green bean pods.

Federico and his family are from scarce economic resources that sometimes just covers the school costs for their children. They spent the money they saved on construction in their home. Now, Federico and his wife are requesting a loan to make another affordable wooden home in their tropical region.
