A loan of $500 helped to buy iron, sheet metal, electrodes and tools.


Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos lives with his family: his mother and his siblings. He’s single and has no children. He works tending to a metal shop, a business he tends to thanks to support from some friends he worked with previously where he was able to gain experience in order to open his own shop. He works at home and does not have a fixed schedule. To date he’s managed to support his family helping them economically.

He’s asking for a loan to buy materials for his work like iron, sheet metal, electrodes and also some tools like tongs and pliers that are necessary for his day to day work. This loan will make it possible for him to have what he needs in one place to continue doing good work offering the best quality.

Carlos’ hope is to have a bigger business that’s more spacious so that he can do a larger number of jobs. He’d also like to form his own family in the future.
