A loan of $800 helped to buy tools such as leather-crafting tools, a press, compressor, welding gun, and hand tools, which will allow him to improve his service and continue working.


Hebert Alexander's story

Hebert has a successful business as a locksmith and metal welder; he is well known in the neighborhood for his good work and service. As he has five years of experience through working in various workshops, he has been able to keep his job, and has tried to improve his family’s living conditions. For this reason, he is requesting a loan to purchase tools for his work, such as leather-crafting tools, a press, compressor, welding gun, and hand tools. With these supplies he will be able to continue to provide his services, since the tools he currently uses are in poor condition, and he is lacking some. Hebert is single and lives with his parents, who he always tries to help financially, so that they can support their home and improve their lives. His biggest dream is to have a large workshop with several employees. Help a young, driven entrepreneur with a loan!
