A loan of $1,075 helped purchase tools and equipment with which to repair watches.

William Humberto's story

William Humberto P. S. is a businessman who learned how to repair watches at previous jobs. At the age of 25, the lack of employment opportunities in Yarumal, the municipality in Northern Antioquia where he lives, forced him to open his own business.

He started what is now his repair business with just a small glass display case, a chair, his hands and some basic tools. He offers his services at the entrance to a local eatery in a commercial area.

His dream of getting ahead in life has driven him to work hard, and he hopes to expand his business in order repair both watches and cell phones, sell related accessories and create jobs for at least two technicians. In this way, he will improve his quality of life.
