A loan of $700 helped build a wall in the front of his house.

Armando's story

Mr Armando P. bought his house thanks to a government loan a little while ago but he needs to build the wall at the front of his house, since he has small children and he wants them to be safe.
He is requesting a loan to be able to finish his project as soon as possible, and plans to repay the loan with the income of his work as a chief of a butcher's shop. When we went to do the visit of the house Mr Armando was not there, he was at work, we meet with his wife Karent Carranza and one of his children who are the ones in the photo.
