A loan of $1,000 helped to buy materials to be able to change the roof of his house.


José Juan's story

José, age 37, is married and lives with his wife and children. He only attended school through middle school. José has been working as a fireman for ten years. He works seven days a week, day and night. It is a hard work, but he says that it fills him with satisfaction, and his family, too. He gets up at 5:00 a.m. with his wife, who supports him in all of the business activities that he does.

He is requesting this loan because he needs to buy materials to be able to change the roof of his house. It is very damaged, and winter is coming. The strong rains are able to cause water to leak into the house. This is not good for his family’s safety.

José’s plan for the future is to use the income from his job to be able to build his family a decent house, which does not pose any risks.
