A loan of $1,275 helped to buy materials and tools, such as ladders, paint, and a welding machine.

Jose Gustavo's story

Jose Gustavo has been making a living by maintaining and repairing houses for two years. His work includes waterproofing houses, painting, constructing the outside walls of buildings, and decorating homes, depending on what the client asks for. This business is a source of income for him and his family.

He is applying for a loan to invest in his business, since he lacks variety in his materials and tools, such as ladders, a range of paint, and a welding machine. At the moment, he does not have the necessary money to make this investment, which is why he has applied for a loan to buy the material which he lacks. He will then be able to offer his clients a better quality job. He plans to pay back this loan with part of his earnings from his business.
