A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase a chainsaw and other work tools.


Horacio's story

Horacio, 25 years old, lives in a common-law relationship with his partner and is the father of a three year old son. Currently he is employed by a sawmill company where he cuts wood with a chainsaw that he has to rent because the company does not provide the equipment for the job. He heard about this work from a friend who provided him with the opportunity to get employment in this field. In this way, he has been able to earn an income to pay for household expenses and other basic needs of his family.

This client is a vigorous man who loves his job and who works hard to find options that will enable him to help his little boy get ahead. This inspired him to apply for a loan to invest in the purchase of a chainsaw and other work tools so that he will not have to continue renting them to do his work. Thus he will make more of a profit and improve the flow of resources so that he can continue succeeding and realizing his dream of becoming self-employed. He wants to earn a living on his own and manage his time so he can enjoy his family more. In this way he will achieve financial stability and improve his own and his nuclear family’s living conditions.
