A loan of $1,550 helped to install running water at home.


Melvyn Gustavo's story

Melvin, 23, works as a salaried taxi driver in the town of Sacaba. This is his first loan through the institution. Melvin plans to use the loan to finish installing running water and finish building his house. It takes a lot of work to transport water for construction purposes or for drinking water, so it will be much more comfortable for the family. For many reasons, the area where he lives does not have basic utilities.

Melvin is very happy and grateful for this opportunity to finish construction of his house and improve his quality of life.
