A loan of $400 helped to buy a machine for his blacksmith workshop.

Ignacio Antonio's story

Ignacio C. is 60 years old and married to Hilda Liduvina Meza C.. He repairs all types of vehicles and also works as a blacksmith. He told us that he started this activity at a very young age with his uncle, who taught him this craft. Later on, Señor Ignacio became independent and worked in his own workshop, gradually becoming known by almost everyone in town.

He has now been active in this trade for over 15 years and is proud of his achievement. He was able to construct his own house on a plot of land that he bought with money earned from his work.

He intends to use his loan to buy a machine to speed up certain tasks. He wants to become a better craftsman and thanks the microfinance institution Fundación Paraguaya for the granted loan.
