A loan of $500 helped to buy metal, glass, soldering irons, etc. for his business.


Jose Noel's story

José Noel is a hardworking and responsible young person. He lives in a community in southern Honduras with his family. He has had a glassworks and balcony workshop for 15 years which is located in his home in the town where he lives.

José Noel needs a loan in order to buy more supplies such as metal, glass, soldering irons, etc. to continue doing his work which provides a large part of his income. With the loan he hopes that his sales will increase and this will help a lot as he does not have enough supplies to cover the orders and solicited work.

José Noel offers thanks for this investment as he expects to be able to improve the quality of life a little for his family with the increase in household earnings and in a short while be able to grow his business and continue supporting his family.
