A loan helped to purchase cement in large quantities, a cart, and a mold.

Oscar Rafael's story

Oscar, 29 years old, is a rural person from the municipality of San Carlos, Cordoba, Colombia. He works at his hardware business, an activity which has become the pillar for his family's sustenance. Currently, he dedicates himself body and soul to his work.

With the goal of improving his productivity, Oscar is asking for a loan, which he will invest in the purchase of cement in large quantities, a cart, and a mold. This is to increase and improve his production capacity. His greatest concern is the fluctuation of prices which cause constant losses in the sector, affecting his earnings directly.
