A loan of $850 helped to buy raw material for the manufacture of horseshoes.


Fabián De Jesús's story

The desire to get ahead in life is something that is born in the heart and there are not impediments that exist to obstruct the realization of dreams. This is the case of Fabian, a young 30-year-old man, who in spite of being disabled, deaf and mute since birth, he has risked everything to create his own workshop to manufacture horseshoes in order to supply his area with these necessities. Now he is resorting to a loan because he is determined to take big strides and transform himself into a micro-entrepreneur. To achieve this, he needs to buy raw materials to begin his biggest dream: to have his own business.

Fabian began to set up his workshop in back of his house due to his current economic situation, but he dreams of soon having a location that will allow him to have access to a greater number of clients generating more income which will let him obtain a better quality of life for himself and for his family.
