A loan of $525 helped to buy a soldering iron to use in his workshop.


Walter Martin's story

Walter provides a welding service and also has his own mechanical workshop. He has lots of customers that bring their vehicles to him to repair. There are four people in the workshop who do different jobs.

This borrower needs a loan in order to buy a soldering iron which is one of the main tools in his work and because of the demand the soldering iron he has isn’t able to accommodate the need.

Walter says, “I am happy and content for the loans provided and for the opportunity and confidence placed in me. These loans have helped me to expand my business. I hope you continue to help me.”

He is married and has two school age children.
