A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a welding machine.

José Tomas's story

José, 56, has made a living working in a metal workshop for more than 30 years. He's married for the second time. He has no children and his wife is a homemaker. He studied up to fourth grade; he wasn't able to continue because of the war and because his family had low financial resources.

He learned the trade from his father, who taught him metalwork. He works in his house, where he has the equipment he uses in his job.

The loan he's requesting from CrediCampo is to buy a welding machine. It's the main tool for doing his job and with it he'll earn more income for his family.

His dreams are to keep on working so he and his wife have better living conditions and to save so they don't have to work when they get older.
