A loan of $1,200 helped to obtain an electric saw and some hand tools.


Edwin Alexander's story

Edwin is a young, 25-year-old businessman who decided to begin an artisan crafts business with his friend. They make agendas, wallets, chests, and miniature figurines.

They are requesting a loan to purchase an electric saw and some hand tools that will allow them to work more comfortably. They currently have to use the saw at a local cabinetmaker's shop. Their workshop is located in his friend's home, which is where their great ideas for artisan crafts come from.

The greatest challenge that Edwin faces is the low value that people place on his creations. His greatest dream is to be able to expand his business and create various objects that he can sell in the artisan market.
