Oscar René's story

Oscar is 52 and never had any schooling. He's partnered and his partner is a housewife. They have three children living with them, two of whom are in school.

For six years, Oscar has worked transporting people or cargo. He has a pick-up and decided to do this work because the community where he lives needed this service. He has also had a mill in his house for six years, and when he's not there, his partner serves customers. The mill is open to the public all day.

He needs the loan he's seeking to invest in repairing the mill, which needs adjustments in the engine and also buy a mill with three hoppers. This way he can provide faster service to his customers.

His dreams are to continue working as a motorist and buy another vehicle down the road. He also wants to help his children go to school until they're professionals.
