A loan of $675 helped buying carpentry materials.

Tayler's story

Tayler is 36 years old. He is married and has two children. As head of the household, he tries to provide for his family's needs, like the house that he was able to acquire with very much effort. He has worked as a carpenter since he was very young. The skill that he had in woodworking motivated him to pursue this profession. For the past 15 years he has worked in a small workshop that he has in the patio of the house. He is there every day from 9am until the late hours of the night working to finish the orders of his clients.

Tayler loves his work, and for this reason he doesn't find it tiresome. The only thing that sometimes prevents him for continuing to work is lack of material. He must stop and wait for the payments of the other orders to attend to the rest of the orders. He therefore is anxious to to have large amounts of materials, such as tools and specialized machinery to speed up his work.

This is his ninth loan with Microfinancieras PRISMA and he hopes to continue working with the same care he has shown until today, always trying to help his communal bank increase earnings to benefit all of his fellow group members. He will invest the 2000 soles in buying materials to quickly deliver on pending orders.
