A loan helped to buy tools to improve his work.

Jose Gregorio's story

José is Venezuelan. He immigrated to Ecuador due to the socioeconomic crisis in his country. He arrived four years ago in the city of Ibarra with a desire to get ahead. Upon arrival, he started to work as a construction laborer. José is a visionary man so he identified the opportunity to start his own small business providing construction, restoration, and maintenance services. With a lot of hard work, he managed to acquire machinery to provide general building maintenance, electricity, plumbing, carpentry, gardening and other services. With dedication, he has managed to consolidate his business. His customers' demand has increased so he has requested a loan to acquire new tools. This loan will give him the opportunity to improve his customer service and increase sales.

José is thankful for your support since he will achieve his objective and strengthen his small business and his finances.
