A loan of $1,525 helped purchase wood to meet several new orders on time.


Ivan Dario's story

Iván, age 39, is the father of two children, ages 17 and 14. Like most of the small business owners of Interactuar, he's a person who lacks a lot of resources, but he works 10-12 hours every day to put food on the table for his kids and keep them in school. He wants them to have better opportunities in a society that gets more competitive every day.

He works as a carpenter and makes really lovely works of art. He learned by doing, and thanks to his hard work, high quality, and good prices, he has several orders in that will represent a substantial amount of income.

He needs this loan to cover the new business. He will invest it in purchasing wood and is committed repaying the loans punctually. For him, the loan means being able to complete his orders on time and keep his customer base. He dreams of living comfortably and of paying for his kids to go to college.
