A loan of $800 helped to buy construction materials.


Edgar's story

Edgar, age 30, is hardworking and has ambitious plans for his business. He worked for many years in the mining industry, but left it due to security problems there. With his savings he started his own business in which he sells mining equipment and supplies, making good use of his knowledge in this area. He works seven days per week from 6 am to 8 pm.

His greatest dream is to be able to strengthen his business and increase his sales. His sales income is the only source of income on which he supports his wife and four-year-old child. Edgar is requesting a loan to buy construction materials for his mining equipment store with the purpose of increasing its profitability and offering his family economic stability.
