A loan of $450 helped to pay for machinery maintenance and to purchase iron and sheet metal.


Cristobal Antonio's story

Cristóbal has a workshop in which he makes metallic structures. He lives with his wife and has four children; only two of which live with them and they are ages 17 and 11. The business was born 27 years ago and he funded the workshop with the efforts of his family. He hasn’t had any problems with it up to this time.

He is requesting the loan to invest in machinery improvements and to pay for maintenance. In addition, he will purchase iron and sheet metal, metallic inputs for doing his work. This loan will help meet his needs to continue the business. Cristóbal aspires to improve living conditions for his family and also to improve the facilities in his home so that it is safer.
