A loan of $675 helped to buy iron, electrodes, paint, and some tools he needs for his soldering shop.


Jonny Obied's story

Jonny is 27 years old and single. He lives with his parents in a village in the Masica municipality in Atlántida. Ever since he was very little Jonny has been doing farm work. However, he did not get enough income. Six years ago he decided to establish his own business and put his skills to work.

He has a soldering workshop where he makes iron gates, balconies for house, gutters for roofs, steel beams, and latticework for windows, etc. He will use the loan he has requested to buy tools and materials that he needs like iron, paint, and electrodes to make the gutters, balconies, and other soldering work that his customers request.

His objective is to come to have a strong business. He wants to create a source of employment and income in order to give his family a better quality of life.
