A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a variety of glass and machinery for his glass shop.

Adhemar's story

Adhemar, 26, has a young son. He sells glass in his glass shop located in Guapuru. This is his first loan cycle with the institution, and Adhemar will use the loan to buy a variety of glass for stock and also buy machinery for the glass shop. The challenge Adhemar faces in his business is lack of materials and machinery.

He is going to use the profits to invest in tools and materials for his glass works, which is slowly expanding. This is his sole means of support for his young son. He hopes to have a large, profitable business that will generate more income and provide a better life.
