A loan of $2,475 helped to install running water in his home.


Nicolas's story

Nicolas is 49 years old and provides passenger transportation. He has spent his whole life behind the wheel. He married at age 30 and formed a family. Now he has a son (18) and he is building his and his son’s home.

Nicolas says that transportation is very hard. “Sometimes we are at the mercy of the weather; constant rains make roads crumble… but I wouldn’t trade this for anything. His son attends school and travels there by bicycle. His current home relies on water delivery trucks, that sometimes don’t come or they run out of water, leaving his family unsupplied with this elemental liquid.

With the help of his family and his brothers, Nicolas was able to build his home and now needs a loan to install running water for the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.
