A loan of $775 helped finish home's gated porch.

Juan Carlos's story

Juan, 44, is married and lives in the Villa Reconciliacion neighborhood. His wife works as a maid; she gets up very early to do her own housework, take care of her husband's and their four children's needs, and then she goes off to work. Two of the children go to elementary school in the morning, and the other two attend middle school in the afternoon.

Juan's business is a TV, radio, stereo repair shop. He also has a delivery service on the side to increase his family income. Juan used to work in welding, and after taking an electronics course, he got the idea of starting the repair business eighteen years ago, and it has become the main source of income for his family.

He would like to reach more customers for his business, but the purpose for this loan is to finish building a gated porch to stay a little safer from theft and vandalism.
