A loan of $825 helped to buy tools in order to minimize his production time and reduce his workload because his advanced age makes work difficult.


Orlando's story

Thirty years of experience speak for themselves as to the quality, not only of the service but also the work, that Orlando does in his metal shop. Orlando is well known in his neighborhood due to his long tenure there.

He has worked for thirty years, yet with the knowledge that he gained in that time he hadn't realized that there were tools that would allow him to get the same results in less time. Therefore he is asking for a loan to buy tools to make his work easier, because at the age of 66 the time it takes to add a finishing touch or make a repair gets increasingly difficult.

He is the father of two boys, both of whom are adults, and whom he had with his current wife. They have served as a source of inspiration and strength to get his business ahead. He hopes to continue the tradition of offering his metalworking services to everyone who comes to him.
