A loan of $525 helped to purchase tools: pliers, electrodes, iron, wire, etc.


Jose Nery's story

José operates a metal workshop, and lives with his wife and children. His work is the only source of income for their family. He learned the metalworking skills while working as an employee in another workshop, and he eventually decided to start his own business, since he has much experience.

He is requesting this loan in order to purchase tools such as pliers, electrodes, iron, wire, and also to purchase laminate materials for making and repairing windows, balconies and doors. He hopes that this purchase will allow him to continue operating his shop, and to provide better services to his clients.

His goal is to expand his shop and increase its working capacity so that his clients will receive improved services. This increased strength for his business will hopefully contribute to better stability for his family.
