A loan of $875 helped to buy a furnace to smelt metals.

Alberto Alejandro's story

Alberto lives in the city of Quevedo in the Los Ríos province. He is 24 years old, single, with no children. His father taught him the family business, which is steel smelting. He now works with his father from Monday through Saturday, from 6 in the morning until 6 in the evening.

With the loan, he will purchase a furnace to smelt bronze steel. His aspirations are to have various furnaces to smelt metals and to be able to teach this work to other people.
