A loan of $500 helped to purchase cement, sand and rocks.


Armando's story

Armando is a 45-year-old serviceman. He's married and has two underage children. He lives in a house that he owns and supports a sister-in-law who lives with him. With the amount of the loan he'll purchase cement, sand and rocks so that he can enlarge his house, because right now it only has a bedroom and a living room. He states that his plan is to finish the construction work and furnish the house. He also states that he'll apply for more loans. He pledges to abide by the contract and states that he'll apply for more loans so he can achieve his plan. To that end he also gets help from his wife, who does small business that increases the family's income.
