A loan of $900 helped to build a bedroom for his son.


Noé's story

Noé is 46 years old and completed high school with a speciality in humanities. Noé is married; his wife completed up to sixth grade at school. She now works for a tuna company cleaning the fish.

The couple has three children. They have one daughter, 21 years old, who has left home, and a 19-year-old son who already has his own family with whom he lives. The only child still remaining at home is the couple's 15-year-old son. He is currently in high school.

Noé works at the local town hall as a security guard. He works 24 hour shifts, with a 24 hour break after each shift. He arrives to work by public transport, a journey that takes 25 minutes. Noé needs this loan in order to build a bedroom for his son. He can then live more comfortably as he currently has to sleep in the living room.

Noé and his wife's dream is to help their son prosper. They want to help him to finish high school and enter university to study a profession. Noé and his wife believe that education is the best inheritance that they can leave their son.
