Jorge Ivan's story

When Jorge Iván was ten years old he learned from his father how to make horseshoes. From then on he has devoted himself to this work. He taught his two children this work, and they work with him.

Jorge Iván buys metal in order to make the horseshoes in his workshop, which is on the patio of his house. He sells the finished product to a wholesaler in the Sonson municipality to the west of Antioquia.

Jorge wishes to buy more iron and coal to continue making the horseshoes. That way he will attain greater income and improve his family’s quality of life.
