Ironwood's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to invest in machinery to increase efficiency.
IronWood is a social enterprise that was born when a young man became inspired after seeing his family of craftsmen working with wood and steel. He saw them working hard every day to bring food to the table, using a skill they had learned since they were very young. He saw in his loved ones the desire to give their best and create a better life for their families. Seeing people around him putting their skill to the service of others, inspired him to become an entrepreneur, and create good employment opportunities for people in his community. He started a company that allows them to show their craft and talents. Ironwood looks for people that couldn't complete a formal education, but that are willing to learn a skill and work hard. The investment will be used to acquire machinery that will allow the company to work in bigger projects and therefore grow and provide more employment opportunities.
