A loan of $1,275 helped to buy a compressor for his blacksmith trade.

Francisco's story

Francisco, 50, is married and lives with his wife and three children, for whom he and his wife have fought to move forward so they are lacking nothing.

He says that from a young age, he traveled abroad for better opportunities. From this experience, he learned how to work as a blacksmith. He was able to save up his money and he returned to his home country where he opened his own business. Today, he works with established customers in his own shop.

He is requesting this loan to invest in buying a compressor, which will allow him to keep working and fighting to improve his business and keep helping his family.
