Adan's story

Adan is 59 years old and lives in his own house with his partner and their two children. Adan works in agriculture, his main crops being corn, beans and sorghum. His earnings from his work allow him to cover some household costs. Adan wants to make improvements to his home by building separate bedrooms for his children and by hooking the house up to the electrical grid. Adan does not, however, earn enough to do this work and so his applying for a loan in order to buy the materials he needs. Adan needs to buy cement, sand, iron, bricks, wire, cables, and to pay labourers in order for him and his family to live more comfortably and securely.
