A loan of $525 helped finishing the construction of a room.


Erick Antonio's story

Erick, 27, lives in the Hialeah barrio in Managua. His wife is a stay-home mother, who cares for their two small children.
Erick works as a bus driver for the cooperatives in Managua. He gets up very early each day, because the first trip begins in the early hours of the morning, and makes five trips throughout the day. He has been at this job for ten years, and has been able to build their small home and make a living.

The loan he is requesting will be used to finish an additional room in his home; he needs sand, cement, and stone.

His long-term goal is to own a bus, work his own routes and have a better income to provide for his children's education.
