A loan of $1,200 helped to buy two-channel sound equipment and an equalizer.


Quintin Carlos's story

Quintín has been with our organization for thirteen loan cycles. He has shown responsibility and punctuality in his repayments. He works in the sound amplification industry. He provides amplification services for birthday parties, weddings, open-air fiestas, fifteenth birthday celebrations and group concerts. The capacity of his equipment is large because he has thirty two amplifiers, equalizers and a giant screen for concerts. His contracts are frequently in the '16 de julio' district and Ceja de El Alto. The amplification work which our client does is hard because he has to transport his amplifiers from his home to the places where they are required. He creates his publicity leaflets in his own home. He normally works weekends, from Thursday to Sunday. His wife works making comforters which she sells in the '16 de julio' district where she has her stall. Quintín has three children who are still in school but who help their father and mother on a weekend. This loan will be used to purchase two-channel sound equipment and an equalizer. Our client has already been through a number of loan cycles with our organization. His previous loans were used to purchase amplifiers.
