A loan of $1,500 helped to consolidate some debt acquired by the school.

Roberto's story

Roberto, 60, works as the director of a school in the community. His wife makes a living as a domestic employee. With her, he has a son who is in the United States. Roberto works full time, and he has lived in the same community for 25 years. He graduated from university in 1989 and since then, has been working in a school in his community. He states that he likes his work very much and enjoys investing part of his time in the community´s girls and boys.

The educational center is 900 meters from his house, which is why it is not difficult to travel to the school. The money will be used to consolidate some of the school´s debt, since months ago they built a multipurpose room, from which they acquired a debt to the hardware store, and it has become necessary to promptly consolidate this debt. Once this is done, the boys and girls will have a better recreational space and better conditions at the school.

Roberto´s projections for the future include having a better-equipped school with recreational areas and more modern infrastructure, which he will be able to achieve with the acquisition of a new loan. He would like to improve access to education as one of the principal rights of boys and girls.
