A loan of $1,275 helped to buy a welder.


Dennys Pablo's story

Dennys is a 46 year old Manan, happily married and the father of two girls. His wife Carmen does not work at the moment and is a housewife. One of their daughters is a married adult and the other is 13 years old and attends the local public school in Manta. He says that he began working with a friend of his father who was a welder when he was very young. He was the teacher who taught him how to work and treat customers. After some time he decided to venture out on his own and open his own shop. He has acquired the necessary machinery little by little. Six years have passed since he made this decision and now he works from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm every day. He says that his lack of equipment is reducing his return but he expects to beat this problem with this loan. His dream is to have a welding shop with all the necessary tools to improve his finances and help by providing employment to other people.
