Leonel Francisco's story

Leonel Francisco is a native of Puerto Cabezas. He is 29 years old, married, and has one nine-year-old son, who is in third grade. For many years he has lived in his parents' house. He is requesting this loan to buy construction materials such as wood, corrugated metal roofing and wood posts and to pay for the labor to build a wooden stilt house. He hopes to give his family their own, safe home. His dream is to have a house made of concrete and to look after his son's personal and professional education.
