A loan of $850 helped buy parts and work tools.

John Jairo's story

John is 42 years old and comes from humble circumstances. His work is his only way of earning a living and sustaining his home. He has two dependent children and strives every day on their behalf to offer them a better quality of life.

For 6 years, he has worked repairing and maintaining refrigeration units. He learned this skill thanks to a friend who works in the same field. Juan travels to his customers' homes in the city of Santa Bárbara, Colombia and its outskirts to work. His greatest difficulty is getting to his customers, since he doesn't have a means of transit.

Even though his needs are many, he knows that with patience they will get worked out. Today he needs to buy parts and work tools in order to continue with his work and improve his financial situation. For this reason, he is asking for a loan, since he doesn't have the means to make this investment on his own.
