A loan of $500 helped to buy iron, metal, and tools.


Raúl Alfonso's story

Raúl lives with his life partner and their two daughters. He has a metal workshop where makes doors, balconies, and bars, among others. He has been in this business for several years, and he has plenty of experience which helps him to improve his work every day. He has grown to have a large clientele because he is sought out for the quality of his work and his accessible prices.

Raúl is a very hardworking, honest, and above all humble man. He wants to grow his business, but he needs capital to buy materials, so he has applied for a loan which will allow him to buy iron, metal, tools, etc. He has good credit references and he is sure that he will be able to pay off his debt and bring financial security to his home at the same time.
