A loan of $325 helped to purchase cement, rocks, sand and beams so he can continue building his house.


Elisio's story

Elísio works as an assistant operator for a railroad company. He's married and has three children, two of whom go to school and one is still too young. He lives in a house that he owns and doesn't support anyone else other than his children.
With the amount of the loan he'll purchase cement, rocks, sand and beams so he can continue building his house. He's currently putting up a roof and installing the windows.
He states that in the future he wishes to make his marriage official and to buy a vehicle for personal use and also for renting out as a way of improving his family's income.
He will repay the loan in a timely fashion and request more loans in order to achieve his dream.
