A loan of $725 helped to buy an electric solder and a drill so as to have his own tools and not pay rent.


Jose Wilson's story

Jose is married and has three children of 3, 12 and 14 years of age. For a long time he has been earning his living through construction work, and thanks to this experience he has a good reputation which has allowed him to obtain good customers. As he has never had much capital, Jose has usually worked with borrowed tools, and these hiring costs have impacted significantly on his income. For this reason, now that he has the opportunity, he is asking for a loan to buy an electric solder and a drill, and in this way to have his own tools and not pay the high rent.

His dream is to be able to improve his family's situation; provide his children with a good education and a offer dignified way of life to all of his family.
