Luis Antonio

El Salvador
El Salvador / Metal Shop

A loan of $1,050 helped to buy sheet plates for doors, iron, welding supplies, and more.


Luis Antonio's story

Luis lives with his family. His wife is 47 years old, and his children are 7, 15 and 27 years old, all of them working and depending on the business.

He owns a metal shop where he has been working everyday for 20 years, carrying out his work at home and in residences.

The loan that he needs will permit him to buy sheet plates for doors, iron, and for welding too, and more. This will help him to have the raw supplies he needs to carry out his work so he can sell doors, gates, balconies, and more.

His dream is to provide a better quality of life for his family and to provide his children and grandchildren an education.
