A loan of $1,000 helped to buy work tools.


Juan Santiago's story

Juan continues in his same business activity, sand blasting. He says that it went well for him with the previous loan because he used it to buy a more powerful water pump to blast the sand.

On this occasion, he is asking for the loan to buy work tools. He feels happy and grateful for the opportunity he is being given to grow his business and improve his quality of life. This is the only business activity that allows him to support himself.
