A loan of $500 helped to buy spare parts.

Jose Daniel's story

José Daniel, 57, has been repairing watches for over 34 years. Loans have helped him stay in business and he is very grateful.

Lack of employment opportunities motivated him to open a business of his own. He is grateful for the opportunity life gives him to move his wife and four children ahead. He envisions a better future for them.

José dreams with enlarging his business more each day so that he will be able to improve his and his family’s quality of life. To start doing so, he needs a loan that will make it possible for him to buy replacement parts: bands, pins and pliers, among others.
