A loan of $925 helped to buy materials for making steel handicrafts.


José Tereso's story

José Tereso's business is making Mexican handicrafts from steel. He has been in this business for more than three years. He is requesting a loan to buy materials (steel and special paint) as he has several orders to deliver and he doesn't have the capital he needs to invest.

José Tereso is originally from the city of San Luis Potosí and has been based in the city of Nuevo Laredo for more than 15 years. He has a young daughter who is only six months old. In order to make more income, José Tereso started a new business selling groceries. He has been in this business for approximately six months. He would like to improve his family's quality of life so that they can enjoy a better future.
