A loan of $1,500 helped to install electric power in his house.


Oscar Antonio's story

34 year old Oscar is a man who is very dedicated to his family. He lives with his partner and their 2 children who are 3 and 5 years old and who are in school. Oscar is a welder, mechanic, and bricklayer, and he learned these trades from a friend when they worked together in the capital. Today, he works as a contractor, doing all types of work. His partner works selling beauty products from a catalog. This is how they are able to support their children. This loan will help Oscar to install electricity supply as he was not able to benefit from a community electricity project as he didn't have a house at the time. But, now he has built one and wants to resolve this great need in his home. His dream is to have a much bigger and well furnished house.
