A loan of $475 helped to buy soldering supplies and an air compressor.

Ruben Emilio's story

Rubén, 30, is a young entrepreneur from the city of Estelí. He does paint and body work with a small, antique soldering machine and blowtorch; these are his main work tools he uses to earn his daily bread and stay in business. He learned this occupation at the age of 17 always trusting that someday he’d have his own paint and body shop and now he does; he’s been in operation a year.

He needs financing to buy soldering supplies and an air compressor because he needs to improve customer service and having machines that are in good operating condition is vital. In his goals is to buy a motorcycle to get around with for work and to buy new work tools.
