A loan of $525 helped to buy a metal bending machine.

John Antonio's story

John at 49 years old lives with his wife and four children. He has worked all his productive life as a locksmith which his father taught him when he was young. Today he has a shop in a rented space where he makes doors, iron grates, windows, wrought iron goods, and other products that clients request. Doing this he generates enough money to get his family ahead.

John is a hard-working, modest, vigorous and persevering person who is always looking for ways to grow. For this reason he is requesting a loan because he wants to increase his production capacity by buying a metal bending machine.This will speed up his production and reduce the cost of fabrication. Which will show up in an increase in the profit margin in selling his products.

This will allow John to continue strengthening his business, making it more profitable and give him the opportunity to move towards his main goal. Which is to acquire a place of his own to have his shop.He wants to continue working diligently and with dedication so he can offer his children a better education and well-being. In a medium term future he'd like to enjoy the fruits of his labor alongside his family.
