A loan of $375 helped to buy lumber and corrugated iron to increase his carpentry business.

Enrique's story

Enrique is 50 years old, a single father, and lives in his own house along with his three children. Enrique makes a living through building houses. His labor is much requested among the people who know his work and they look for him to contribute to any project from its inception to its completion. His experience in this work is his main calling card because he knows the details of all the necessary guidelines that exist for a construction job since he has done this work for 15 years and it is going well. He really enjoys working in construction and knows that with this job his great wish is to build lodging to rent.

At this moment he asks for 1,000 PEN. He is grateful to those who offer him the loan that he needs to continue developing his business. He is going to be a very punctual client and will pay his fees on time, as he has done with previous loans that he has been granted. With the requested amount he wishes to upgrade some tools in order to improve the work that he does, and he also wishes to buy lumber and a few corrugated panels to build his first rental lodging.
