Elvis's story

He is originally from Bonanza and he moved to Waspam 6 years ago for economic reasons. He has some experience with health and nutrition programs. He is married, 44 years old and has three children, two of which are adolescents in secondary school and the youngest who is 7 years old, in the first grade of primary school. His wife is a homemaker.

With the goal of having his own home and living securely, he is requesting a loan to buy materials to build a wooden house on stilts: 1,000 feet of rough-hewn wooden planks, corrugated tin, nails and to cover labor costs. His dream is to have a concrete house and start his own business.
