A loan of $1,125 helped purchase a soldering machine and other tools for electricians.


Manuel's story

My name is Manuel, and I'm a 42 year old Costa Rican. I live in the province of Heredia, and have two teenage children. I work as an independent electrician. I have formed my own company and little by little have grown my client base, but I need electrian's tools in order to provide my clients with better service. I am applying for a loan of 550,000 colones; with this loan I will buy a soldering machine and other tools that I need to do efficient and high quality work.

With my income I provide for my family and pay for my children's education. My dream is to grow my business and be able to employ other people. I am very thankful to God for this loan opportunity because it is fast and its terms are not difficult to fulfill.
