A loan of $1,000 helped to buy the materials he needs to complete his project.

Jesús Santana's story

Jesús is 53 years old, studied until Grade 6 and has a partner and three children, two of whom live with him and one who has already found a partner. His son is studying the first year of his degree. This client lives with two sons and a granddaughter. His wife left home a couple of days ago to look for work to help support him.

Jesús generates an income out of a business as a construction worker. He began as an assistant and that way he was able to keep learning. This is the only job that the client has performed from a very young age. His job is a very long way away so he has to catch many buses to get to work.

Jesús will use this loan to buy the material he needs to complete the project he is currently working on. With this loan he will improve his quality of life and obtain a better income. His dream is to have his own tools to be able to do his job better and to provide his children with an education.
