A loan of $1,500 helped to build a house.


Jorge Carlos's story

Jorge lives in a neighborhood far from the city. He has a small house, and his economic activity is carpentry. He makes wooden furniture, working with his brothers. His father is in charge of the repair of the machinery and the purchase of materials or wood.

His income is enough to cover all his expenses, but now he is requesting a credit to build a house, in which he wants to make new rooms, as he currently only has one small one and it is somewhat uncomfortable. When the construction project is finished, he will be able to live comfortably and will manage to improve his living conditions.
