A loan of $1,475 helped to fix his roof before it collapses.


Ronald's story

Ronald is 37 years old and lives in the north of Cochabamba; he is married to Jimena. Ronald completed high school and has two young children who depend on his income. Ronald has shown himself to be responsible and hard-working. Ronald's main job is as a butcher's assistant at a business that is known across the country. He has been working there for eleven years, Ronald is only able to help his family to get ahead, however, with another job at the weekend - he works as a builder to earn a little more money.

Ronald is applying for this loan as he needs to pay for his home to be refurbished. It is currently in a bad state due to the constant rains which have affected many people over the past few months. If Ronald does not carry out repairs to the roof, it may fall and cause accidents and, as a result, it is very important that he improve his family's current living conditions.
