A loan of $650 helped to purchase sound equipment and accessories.


Wilson's story

Wilson is 44 years old and has three children, ages 15, 11, and 2. He runs a business renting amplification services. He works on the weekends or when he has a contract. This is the main source of income for he and his family. His children are still in school. His wife also helps with the household expenses with small sales of specific seasonal products. The loan will be used to purchase sound equipment and accessories, thus allowing him to improve his income and consolidate his business, since he has a lot of work in these dates. Wilson is young and hard-working with a great desire to succeed. He wants to offer his children a better future. This job is very tiring since he rents his services to specific social events such as baptisms, weddings, graduations, and many of these events end in the early morning. Wilson is used to staying up very late on many occassions, since this is his job and he has to continue working hard. He feels grateful for the opportunity that the organization is offering him to improve his business each day.
