A loan of $300 helped to buy a polishing machine because his is obsolete.


Orlando's story

Orlando has always considered himself to be very hardworking and wants to give his family a good quality of life. For that reason he puts in effort every day in his locksmith's shop, seeking better financial opportunities for his household. He's been working in this trade for about 40 years. He learned from a very early age and kept his job for a long time. Due to the fact that his job didn't pay well, he decided to start his own locksmith workshop and has been doing that for 22 years, improving his family's quality of life. In his workshop he offers products like doors, windows, bars, decorative items and other things, and thanks to the quality of his work he has very good sales. With the desire to upgrade his machinery, Orlando is seeking a loan to buy a new polishing machine because the one in his shop is obsolete.

This way he will continue to offer good work to his customers and can keep his monthly sales up. Orlando dreams of being able to take care of his wife and 2 children, giving them a good university education.
