A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase a welder, grinder, drill, and other tools.

Patricia Daniela's story

Patricia is a married 34 year old woman. Her husband is Edson. They are a relatively young couple and do not have children yet. They live six kilometers from the city of Cochabamba in the northeast. They do not have their own home as they rent their own home and bathroom. They both work as technicians for a company where their salaries are not high so they want to improve their living conditions by using this loan to purchase three machines: one for welding, one for grinding, and one for drilling. With these tools, they plan to work on the weekends on their metalwork and machine repair. They can work on either domestic or industrial machines as the husband has experience. With this they plan to improve their lives and become independent of their company while eventually opening a workshop to service machines in their specialty.
