A loan of $1,500 helped to repair the roof of his house.

Willian Antonio's story

Willian is a respected person and well-known in his community for his high sense of service to others. He is a person of good moral and religious beliefs. He is 36 years old. He grew up with his parents and grand-parents who took it upon themselves to teach him the values that today have gotten him ahead, to be a good person and successful.

Willian went to the local school where he studied all morning and in the afternoons he helped his father and grandfather with the agricultural chores. At this time agriculture was their main source of income, what helped to provide sustenance to the family and paid for the basic needs of the family. With the passing of time Willian gained knowledge and experience in managing the growing of basic grains and became independent. He met his wife at this time and they decide to form a family. They have 3 children who study in the local school.

He works as a driver for the municipal government. He learned this activity from his best friend who worked in a public transportation unit. On week-ends Willian would accompany him in the mornings as he learned how to drive vehicles. He became a professional in order to do this work and he has been doing this for 15 years. With much effort and sacrifice he managed to obtain his own vehicle and offer transportation services.

The money from the loan will be used to make improvements on his house. It is the rainy season and the roof needs some immediate repairs. In this way he will provide his children and his whole family with more security. That is a fundamental right in life. The plans he has for the future include finishing his house with all the necessary conditions for the rest and protection of his family. He wants to help his children all he can so they become successful professionals. One of them has indicated a desire to be a civil engineer and Willian can mange this with good investments of his income and the help of a new loan.
