Orbany's story

Señor Orbany is 39 years old, and is the father of two children aged 9 and 4. He works doing soldering, plumbing and electrical repairs in farms and homes, which he does in addition to selling vegetables.

Señor Orbany learned his trade from his brother. Señor Orbany needs to purchase a compressor which will allow him to undertake his work with greater ease, with the end goal of providing better service to his customers.

Señor Orbany's dream is to have is own soldering and plumbing workshop. With this he would be able to take on jobs directly and earn better income to provide his family with a better quality of life..
