Julio Cesar's story

Julio Cesar is a farmer and lives with his wife Rosa and their son. Every morning, he gets up before the sun rises to work in the field. Meanwhile, Rosa stays home cleaning, cooking, and taking care of their child. Every afternoon, Rosa goes out with their son to sell what Julio Cesar grows in the field. Their hard work earns them roughly $600 USD a month.

Julio Cesar has worked hard over the years and has been able to build a home for his family. However, their house is small even for the young family. They all live, cook, eat and sleep in the same room. Julio and Rosa know that more children will come soon and they need to expand before that happens. The family has been saving for the last three months to add two additional bedrooms and one bathroom to this house. This loan will help them pay for the materials needed to finish the construction and get expert supervision.

Julio Cesar has no access to credit with other organizations because he has an informal job that does not pay much and has irregular cash flows. The family will work together to build this addition to their home. They will receive supervision visits from certified technicians to monitor the quality and progress of the construction, and to prevent them from losing all the time and money they have already invested. In less than 3 months, Julio Cesar, Rosa and their child will be able to live in a better house with more space, that allows them to lead a healthier lifestyle.
