A loan of $650 helped to purchase frames for the windows and doors, plaster the house and start building a cesspit for his indoor bathroom.


Constantino's story

Constantino is a pensioner. He's married and lives in a house that he owns. He has three children, two of whom are already adults and one is in school. Aside from this child, he supports four nephews, but they don't live with him - he only sends them money.
He states that with the amount of the loan he'll purchase frames for the windows and doors, plaster the house and start building a cesspit for his indoor bathroom.
His dream is to finish the construction work, furnish the house, build a fence wall around his yard and make his marriage official.
He pledges to repay the loan in a timely fashion, according to the scheduled timeframe. He states that he'll apply for more loans so he can accomplish his projects.
