A loan of $1,550 helped pay off his loan for oxygen soldering equipment he purchased.

Mardonio's story

Mardonio is a 58 year old widower. He has 4 children and owns a solidly constructed house. He used to grow organic coffee, but after his wife died he sold his land and started doing auto body work, repairing and painting vehicles. This work requires patience and precision in order to provide quality service. He is very grateful for this job because, in addition to generating a good income, he is able to watch over his family. He is requesting a loan of 4,000 nuevos soles to pay off his outstanding debt for oxygen soldering equipment he purchased and continue with business as usual. He is committed to making his payments on time. His long term goal is to finish the second floor of his home so he can rent it out and provide a steady income for his family.
