Ricardo Jose's story

Ricardo is a young labourer who works daily to succeed in life. He has a small vulcanisation and tyre sales business.

Ricardo does not have children yet, but he plans to get married this year. This is why he is requesting help with a loan to be able to build a small extension and reinforce the humble home he currently lives in. He wants to offer his future wife a respectable home and thanks to the finance he will be able to buy building materials like cement, iron, bricks, purlins, corrugated zinc sheets and stone.
