Alfonso Javier's story

Alfonso is 44 years old and the father of 5 children, including 19-year-old twins who are the oldest. He supports all of them equally with his small income from selling dairy products. He buys these products at the market and sells them in the neighborhood where he lives. His wife helps him with a small business selling cosmetics from a catalog. In this way, the family survives and covers its daily expenses. With the previous loan, Alfonso was able to finish the porch section of his house. Now, with this second loan he is requesting, he will complete the perimeter wall around his home, which is necessary for his children's safety.
