Juan's story

Juan is a 44 year old father of a family. He is married and has a beautiful family with 5 children between the ages of 8 and 22 years old. This humble family lives in a community in Nahuala. Juan works as a bricklayer in order to get his income and support his family. He has 25 years experience in this work and to improve his income he also works as an automobile driver.

A long time ago Juan realized that one of his necessary priorities was the purchase of some land as they do not have sufficient land. So he is requesting a loan to be able to take advantage of a plot of land that is being sold that measures 28 varas by 28 varas (a local measurement) with coffee and banana crops on it. Juan dreams of being able to build a cinder block house and buy another motorcycle taxi.
