Oscar Alexis's story

Oscar is 26 years old and studied up until high school. His life partner works as a housewife and they have two children who study, live with them and are dependent on them. Oscar works as a collector for a sales representative. He has worked for the same company for nine years. He started as a vendor but later he gained their trust and was promoted to collector. He also spends his weekends cultivating 7000 square metres of corn, since he works at his job Monday to Friday. With this loan Oscar will buy materials to make home improvements. He will buy 15 bags of cement, 500 bricks, 2 quintals of iron and pay for the cost of labour. This is how this client will invest their loan. He hopes that his children will be able to live in a decent home in good condition. Oscar dreams of being able to build his home and bring up his family and of being able to watch his children grow and prepare them academically, however he knows that he will be able to achieve these goals thanks to the loan and he hopes that God will give him life and health to achieve them.
