A loan of $600 helped to buy an electric planer for his workshop.

Blas's story

Blas is a carpenter from the city of Ybycuí. He has enjoyed working ever since he was a child, when he started working with his neighbor, who was a carpenter. Over the years he felt he should begin working on his own so he could earn a little more income, which he thought he could achieve by going independent.
He therefore left the place he'd been working, but there was a problem: he didn't have enough money to buy the necessary tools. So he traveled to Argentina to scrape together enough to buy what he needed. Once he was back in his country, he started his little business. Soon after, he got married, and he and his wife had a son.
He is requesting a loan to buy an electric planer, which will help him a great deal in his work.
