A loan of $700 helped purchase materials to repair the roof of his workshop.

Ever's story

Ever is 43 years old and resides in El Transito in the Department of San Miguel. He lives with his wife and two children, ages 5 and 3. Ever has a workshop where he creates metal structures. This business is his only source of income. He started this business after he had worked several years at a similar shop owned by a friend. Ever was able to set up his own workshop in his home, but he does not currently work on a set schedule.

The loan he is requesting will be used to improve the roof that cover his workshop since it can no longer withstand the winter conditions. With the proceeds, Ever will be able to buy the necessary materials such as laminate to rebuild the roof and improve the appearance of his workshop. As a result, he will be able to provide better service and greater comfort for his customers.

His plans are to expand his workshop, attract more customers, improve the living conditions for his family, and create opportunities for his children to study so that they can become professionals in the future.
