A loan of $3,650 helps a member to increase products for his welding business.


Orc - Los Amigos Group's story

Luis is a hard-working man, 32 years old. He works arduously to be able to support his two young children. He is the only one who cares for them and educates them. He is wearing grey pants and a light blue t-shirt.

From the moment he finished school, he set to work. For this, he has 10 years of experience in welding. He works from Monday to Saturday at a space in his home, this allows him to care for his children.

He works very hard at his job to offer good service. He is known for doing work to the individual orders of the customers and for being very punctual with the delivery.

Luis asked Sembrar Sartawi IFD for a loan to increase his raw material. This is a great opportunity because demand increased and he would be ale to generate more income.

He works with great desire to give the best to his young children.
