Rafael's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy belts and discs.
Rafael lives in his family home along with his mother and a brother. He does not have children. He runs a mill in his home that he operates from five in the morning until four in the afternoon. He learned how to do this with a friend and he has been doing it for six years. His customers are people from the area. He is asking for a loan to buy materials to repair the foundation where he set up his mill, as he bought a new mill and he needs to strengthen the foundation. He also needs to buy belts and discs, which his new tool needs to function. His goal is to be able to improve the service he offers his customers and to be able to support his mother and his siblings with the income they can get from his business.
