A loan helped to buy aluminum, glass, rods, solder, metal sheets, and work tools.


Ruben Vladimir's story

Rubén is 24 years old. He is characterized as being friendly, charismatic, responsible, humble, and honest. He lives with his parents and sister. He has been making doors and windows for more than 5 years. At the beginning, he started working in an industrial workshop where he acquired the necessary experience to undertake his own business of making doors and windows and in this way obtain more income from this work.

Rubén is applying for help to boost his business and buy aluminum, glass, rods, solder, metal sheets, and work tools. In this way, he will be able to make more doors and windows, allowing him to generate more profitability from his business, which will serve him to pay for his education, since his parents don't have the necessary resources to support him in his dream of being a professional.
