Milciades's story

Milciades is 31 years old, he was a peasant and worked as a farmer for several years.

One year ago he decided to work making horseshoes along with a partner, since he didn't have enough capital to establish his own business. He believes this change has been for the best, because he assures us his living standards have improved and he has been able to provide his family - particularly his eight-year-old son - better opportunities for education.

His dream is to one day own his own home and establish his business, so that his financial situation improves and he may guarantee higher living standards for his family. That is why he is requesting a loan, which he will invest in purchasing 1/2 and 3/8 rods, metal sheets, and charcoal, so that his production capacity and the sales of his products increase.
