A loan of $800 helped to buy a welding machine.

Jefferson Regulo's story

Jefferson, 33, lives in Guayaquil. He started in his line of work as an apprentice, where he observed how to use construction tools. Later he worked as an employee, and now he is a master welder. This is how he supports his household.

Jefferson works on his own from 9am until 6pm. There are times when the winter weather is a problem for him, because it is impossible to do this type of work in the rain.

Jefferson is married, and his wife helps with the household chores. They have no children, and so his earnings are used for his business, his house, and his well-being.

With this loan, he wants to buy a welding machine. He dreams of having a good workshop with his wife, where they could have a number of employees and have a comfortable life where they have everything they need.
