A loan of $1,175 helped to buy raw material to make balconies, latticework, and bodywork.

Jonny Obied's story

Jonny is 27 years old and single. He lives with his parents and siblings in the Masica municipality. For six years Jonny has had a business activity that generates the income needed for him to support his family.

He has a soldering workshop where he makes balconies for houses and latticework. He also manufactures and repairs bodywork on trucks. He says that he has the needed experience to offer this service, where he already has his own customers.

He is now requesting his third loan for 23,000 lempiras. He will use it to buy raw materials to make the balconies, latticework, and bodywork. Having the necessary material, he will be able to give his customers better service.

His dream is to have a suitable place for his business. He also dreams of improving the quality of his life and that of his family.
