A loan of $725 helped to buy wheelbarrows, sanders, chisels, shovels, hammers, hoes, and other tools.


Rafael's story

Rafael is thirty years old. He is single and lives in his family home. He is a very hard worker and an honest, responsible, proactive, and very cheerful person. He is a master builder and his references describe him as very good at his work because of his very detailed finishings. He will use this loan to buy construction tools (wheelbarrows, sanders, chisels, shovels, hammers, hoes, and other items). His short term goal is to purchase a cement mixer, and his long term dream is to make his business grow.
