Gabriel Jaime's story

Señor Gabriel began his business of manufacturing and selling leather goods for horses, including saddles and bits, 20 years ago. He learned this trade when he was very young and had already labored in different saddleries before starting his own business. This enabled him to obtain the necessary knowledge to run his own business.

At the moment, he offers employment to a person with speech limitations who has great ambitions for improvement. Gabriel's objective is to be able to offer more jobs to people in similar positions. He believes that these individuals have a lot of potential to perform well in any job, but unfortunately, society has excluded them.

Gabriel is requesting a loan to buy a batch of steel, a blacksmith's press, and other work tools like sandpaper, all things that will permit him to maintain high sales and earn more income. One of his biggest dreams is to give a quality education to his two children, who are the most precious treasures he has, and to offer a better life for his wife.
