A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase machinery and raw materials.

Jaime Acisclo's story

At 31 years of age, Jaime dreams of having his own business and because of this he is currently requesting a loan. About eight years ago he learned how to craft items out of wicker. He makes all types of furniture. Having this knowledge, he decided to start his own business for which he needs equipment and raw material to produce his first items and sell them to generate income and grow the business.

Jaime wants to have a large business in the future, recognized in the area, and identified by his customers for the good quality of the products and good service. To start this process he needs to buy machines such as: circular saw, drill, blowtorch, stapling gun, and others. The cost of these is very high and he currently does not have this sum of money. He is wanting to get the loan and be able to start his business with the hope of having a better future and improved quality of life.
