Jose Luis's story

This borrower is originally from Puerto Cabezas. He is 34 years old, married, and has 3 children who are all minors. For the past 4 years, he has lived in a small wooden house. With the goal of living in a safe and dignified way, he is requesting a loan to buy materials to build a type of house that combines concrete and wood in its wall construction: rough wood, iron, cement, cinder blocks, zinc, nails and the cost of labor. His dream is to have a concrete house.
