Rodolfo Manuel
View original language description ↓
The client Rodolfo Manuel asks for a loan to improve his home. He wants to improve his kitchen and in that way improve his family's life. Over time and through loans, he has been building his home. It is built of concrete with a ceramic floor, zinc roof, living room, two bedrooms, electric power, and drinkable water, but the kitchen is not in good condition. He works in the business of servicing topographers. He counts on the support of his wife who helps him with the household expenses. This young man is a professional that started working when he was young. He is humble and has a spirit of personal improvement. In his past loans, he has had good credit history, the will to pay, and responsibly assumes his credit commitments.
