A loan of $1,500 helped renovate his house and business.


Jorge Emilio's story

The person soliciting this loan is a young person with the drive to improve himself personally, socially and professionally. He has a small locksmith shop and builds and sells rolling doors, both businesses he runs from home. Emilio is single and independent, so he’s a good candidate for this loan. The loan he is requesting is to make renovations to his home, and in the future, he’ll be able to add more tools to his business and that way generate more income. With this loan he’ll be able to improve the quality of his home and his business in order to offer a better service to people who are looking for rolling doors. The location of his business and his home is in the centre of Santa Cruz, which is a very commercial area and is the reason why he has lots of clients. The determination and great care Emilio puts into his trade results in good quality work and that is the reason why his competition is dwindling. One of his dreams and goals is to grow his small business so he can offer employment.
