A loan of $575 helped to do some structural work and strengthen his stock.


Oscar Darío's story

Oscar Darío learned to paint and decorate on building sites when he was 16 years old. Since then he has carried out his work with care and commitment. He works from Monday to Saturday, from 8.00am to 6.00pm, or whenever his customers want him to do the work because, as he himself says, the service he provides is very important if he wants his business to prosper as good service will provide him with more loyal customers and this, in turn, will lead to an improvement in his quality of life.

Oscar would currently like to improve his small business and needs a loan which will allow him to do some structural work and strengthen the stock of supplies that he needs to carry out his work. Oscar dreams of increasing his sales day by day and for his business to finally become an inheritance that he can pass down to his children and which will enable him to offer them a better future.
