A loan of $425 helped to buy work tools for his locksmith shop.


Jhon Ferley's story

For five years Jhon Ferley has been in the locksmith business. He learned his trade at the municipal training institute in Medellín in the department of Antioquia. Now he makes items such as industrial steps, bridges, windows, grilles and other products required by his customers. Jhon generates one place of employment. His greatest goal is to one day have a business that will generate more employment and be recognized in the sector. He knows that that will increase his income and allow him to help many people.

On of his top priorities is to buy work tools, but he does not have the capital to do so. Therefore, he is requesting a loan that will allow him to speed up his production process and delivery of the work orders so the customers will be satisfied with his service. Sales will increase and his quality of life will be more pomising in proportion.
