A loan of $1,575 helped to buy steel sheets, iron, and coal in bulk.


Oscar Iván's story

Oscar is a young man who is 20 years of age and has no children. For the past five years, he has been making handcrafted horseshoes since he has the basic tools for doing this type of work. He learned this trade from a friend.

Oscar is an energetic and hardworking young man. The lack of resources has not stopped him. He works in an area outside of his house and his finished products are sold to a wholesale vendor. The loan he is requesting from Interactuar will be used to buy materials in bulk (steel sheets, iron, and coal) so that he can obtain the best price. As a result, he will be able to generate more profit from his sales.

His greatest wish is to continue with his trade and grow his business so that he can reach a higher income level and provide new job opportunities.
