A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a motorized mill.

Miguel Ángel's story

Miguel is 30 years old, and he lives with his wife and three kids aged 11, 9, and 4 years old.

10 years ago he learned how to be a tailor, and it was a friend who taught him. He also works in agriculture, and it was his father who taught him. He has 25 laying hens, and he works as a night watcher in one of the offices. His life is busy, but his dreams are many, and he desires to give his family the best.

He buys the products for the tailor shop and the agricultural supplies in a city in the east of the country. In order to get there he travels in the bed of a truck, and an hour later he’s there. He makes his purchases and goes back home.

The loan that Miguel is asking for is to buy a motorized mill. With this investment he’ll get daily income and will improve his family’s quality of like since he hopes that he children will grow up to be professionals.
