A loan of $400 helped to purchase sand and cement for repairing the walls of his home.


Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel is 20 years old and makes a living working as a mason and raising a few chickens on his small plot of land.

Little by little, Manuel is trying to make improvements to his simple home, and he hopes to leverage the support from this loan to purchase cement and sand to repair the walls of his home. Currently, the walls of his house are made of adobe, so when it rains, moisture and water seep into the walls and accelerate their deterioration and encourage insects to lay their eggs in the cracks. Manuel hopes this investment will help him to make his home more secure and comfortable.
