A loan of $275 helped repair home roof.


José Humberto's story

Mr. José Humberto B. P. is 48 years old and lives in the San Caralampio La Concepción neighborhood with his wife, Angela Rosa Lopez, who is a produce vendor in the Mercado Oriental in Managua. With the profits earned from the business, she helps out José with the household expenses because they have 2 children in middle school—a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy. After getting home from school, the girl helps her mother with the household chores, while the boy accompanies his mother in search of the next day’s merchandise. They have been selling in this market for 4 years. Mr. B. has been working as a security guard at the Belén household, which is located on 10 ½ Masaya Highway, for 8 years. This family has a small plot of land that they cultivate in order to earn extra income. He is requesting this loan for home improvement because his roof is in disrepair, and everytime it rains, they have to place containers all over the house to collect the water so that it will not deteriorate the few things they have.
