A loan of $800 helped working capital.


Cecilio's story

This isn't the first time that Cecilio, 64, has applied for a loan and past loans have been very important for his business. He has operated a carpentry business for more than 16 years. Before that, he worked as a security guard but the work was very dangerous and he decided, with the help of a friend, to set up his own business, something that has better suited both him and his family. Cecilio will use the loan to buy wood, nails, glue, locks and latches. His goals are to improve his shop and always stay active.
