Fernando's story

Señor Fernando is 63 years old. He is a widow with one child, who is 34 years old. He is a gold and silver artisan, or more accurately, a metalsmith. He makes all kids of jewelry according to his customers' orders and tastes. His jewelry store is in the Madrid Zone.

This loan is his first within the institution. Señor Fernando is going to use the loan to purchase supplies and working materials like gold, silver, sulphuric acid, and metal polish for his business. Fernando faces challenges in his business, such as security concerns; he will subsequently have to invest in improving the security of his shop.

Señor Fernando's wish is to improve his family's quality of life; to that end, he works hard and without stopping to rest.
