A loan of $1,675 helped to purchase metal and tools.


Jacinto Vladimir's story

Jacinto has lived in the beautiful city of Quevedo for 37 years. He is married, and has three school-aged children. Jacinto works as a locksmith. He learned from his father since this type of work is the specialty of his family. With time, he gained experience and saved money so that now he has his own workshop. He has one employee. They start at 7:30am and work until 5:30pm. His business offers tubes, rods, and also makes stoves, grills, and roller doors for businesses.

He will use this loan to purchase metal materials and tools that he needs to shape things. In the future, he would like to have his own factory making roller doors so that he could support his family.
