A loan of $800 helped to buy welding supplies.


Jose Antonio's story

José Antonio, 42, is married and has three children who are 19, 12 and 4 years old. He lives with his family in the city of La Ceiba, Atlántida. José has a welding shop. He works on metal structures and in general welding. He learned to work in this occupation because he’s always worked for others in their shops but for the last 21 years has been independent and has had his own business wherein he states he’s done very well and the profits he’s earned and the ODEF loans he’s been granted have helped him raise up his business. He’s also made improvements to the locale where it operates to provide better service to the customers that call on him.

This 15000 lempira loan he’s requesting will help him stock up on materials to do his welding jobs and to continue giving still better service than before. In the future he plans to open another shop in a different part of the city.
