A loan of $375 helped to install flagstone for his business.

Jose Antonio's story

José Antonio is a very hard-working and responsible man. He started his business, a soldering shop called “Don Pepe”, two years ago. He does a variety of ironwork like doors and protections. He does it all to the size and color that the customer requires.

His business is in the open air, and there is only laminate sheeting covering his work area. That is why he decided to install flagstone in order to be more protected. He also made this decision so that he will not suffer from exposure to the sun, which could cause a more serious problem.

In order to carry out his project he needs to buy construction material and to pay for the labor. This way he will be able to continue working without any problem. This is his only source of income.
