A loan of $325 helped to buy raw materials and small tools for making gold and silver jewelry for resale.

Satening's story

Satening, who is in his sixties, adores his trade as a jeweler, a trade which has been carried out by his family, from one generation to another. He inherited it from his father, who in turn inherited it from his grandfather. He has some of the tools for his work but has been obliged to replace others with more performing tools. For this reason he needs a loan so he can buy raw materials and some tools. He makes jewelry with gold and silver and has a very loyal customer base, since as far as gold is concerned it is important to deal with a trustworthy person.

Satening is married and father to a large family, which he is able to feed thanks to the income from his business. He is helped by his children who are also laborers; they help with the household expenses.

He has a dream of creating a large family company and building up a reputation throughout the region for the quality of their work.
