A loan of $500 helped to buy materials to build a proper roof for his house.

Senorino's story

Senorino has lived in Totolapan, Morelos, and has worked as a cactus grower for the last 30 years of his life. His wife Maria Luisa used to help him but with four kids she is pretty busy at home! To have some extra cash for household expenses Senorino started using his own truck as a unregistered taxi, taking take his neighbors that had no transportation to where they needed to go.

With his two jobs Senorino makes around $1,000 USD a month. Today the family lives in a house which they feel suits them well. The only problem is that all the rooms in the house have a tin roof instead of a proper roof. This has brought some problems to the family regarding their health, especially to their youngest child who has a respiratory disease.

Senorino has been saving for the last three months to buy the materials needed to build a proper roof above their house. With his loan Senorino will also receive technical assistance and supervisory visits to make sure the new roof meets quality and safety standards. Senorino is sure that once the roof is done the high temperatures in summer will be more bearable and they will be shielded from the strong winds in winter. Senorino is also sure that her daughter's health will start to improve.
