A loan of $375 helped to buy tin to put a roof on the new welding shop.

Gelgi De Los Angeles's story

Ms Gelgi is mother of three children and very hard working as she raises her children alone. It's difficult but the love of her children helps her to excel so that they are not for want of food or education. She has been working in sewing for several years and has gained experience and speed in her work. She also invests in a welding services shop in partnership with her brother to improve their income. With the loan, they would buy construction materials to repair the door and add a roof for the workshop as it is in front of their home. They will do better business with this new shop front along with the the tools her brother wants. They hope to attract customers with the new shop and improve the economic situation for their families.
