Carlos's story

Carlos is 44 years old, and lives in the municipality of Sonsón, Colombia, where, for the past fourteen years, he has dedicated himself to the creation of horseshoes in a little workshop located in his house. Thanks to this activity he has managed to move his family forward and offer them better opportunities in life. Now his children are studying, and because the humble family does not find itself lacking in basic services.

Carlos is a man full of dreams which he hopes to make into reality, and one of them is to be able to expand his business and increase his level of purchase, changing into the largest distributer of horseshoes in the municipality. This is the reason he is asking for this loan which will be used for the purchase of raw materials (iron, rubber, plastic, and leather).

He hopes with this investment he would be able to improve the quality of life for his family and achieve his big dream.
