Santa Cruz, Bolivia / Metal Shop

A loan of $1,000 helped purchase a soldering machine.


Hugo's story

Sr. Hugo lives in the urban district of Terrado 3 in the suburb of Plan 3000. He has two children attending elementary school. His wife helps by selling plastic bags. Hugo is a welder who has a workshop that he uses as a metal shop. He manufactures platforms, garage doors, security bars, railings, and chairs. Hugo owns a small soldering machine, but it is not adequate for the work he needs to perform.

The loan he requested will be used to buy a larger soldering machine with more voltage that will help him produce better work. This will also save him from having to rent a machine. Hugo is the type of person who wants to succeed. He is hard worker and expresses his appreciation to Emprender and Kiva for trusting him by providing this loan.
