A loan of $725 helped buy building supplies.


Juan Pablo's story

27-year old Sr. Juan works as a contract bricklayer building and renovating houses. He lives in the community of Cullucachi. This is his second loan within the first loan cycle with the institution Emprender. He plans to use the money to buy construction material so that he can do his work more efficiently. He already has several contracts to complete.

Juan expects to continue improving his business by buying work tools as those he has are worn out and he needs to buy new ones. He is a very hardworking person, and he is happy to have this opportunity to get a loan. His work is his only way of supporting himself.
