After he got married, Lester decided to become independent because he needed to generate income for his family. He began performing welding jobs in his community.

He previously helped his mother manage a vegetable stand that she owns in Granada.


Lester wants to deliver his customers’ orders on time and according to specification. For this reason he is requesting a loan in order to buy tools, welding equipment, a compressor, a drill, and a polisher. All of these supplies are needed for his work.
