Irineo
Irineo G. P. is a young man of 24 years of age. He is single, and he works in a mechanics shop that he founded some years ago. He finished his high school education, but did not continue his studies due to his complete dedication to his work.
He is requesting a loan to buy tools and accessories for his work. With this loan, he will buy: four way wrenches, tongs, motor grease, lubricants, filters, antifreeze, brake fluid, pistons, and spark plugs. Things are going well for Irineo and his shop, but he does not own the premises. So far, he has been able to pay the rent on time and also pays his assistant on time. He tells us that the auto mechanic trade is a little difficult and sometimes work is scarce.
It will not be hard for him to pay back his loan because he is an honest and responsible person. His challenge is competition from other auto mechanics, but when he does good work, everyone recognizes it.
Irineo hopes to have his own business premises some day, to not have to pay rent, and to increase his staff and equipment so that he can offer more services. He tells us that, for the moment, he does not have plans to get married or engaged because he wants to build a solid business first so that in the future it won't be so difficult to support a family.
He gives thanks to Fundacion Realidad and to Kiva for opening this door to him as it is a little difficult for men to find other investors.

Él solicitó un préstamo para la compra de herramientas y accesorios de trabajo, con este dinero comprará: llaves de cruz, pinzas, grasa para motores, lubricantes, filtros, anticongelante, liquido para frenos, pistones, bujias. A Irineo le va bien en su taller aunque el establecimiento no sea de su propiedad, hasta hoy le ha alcanzado para pagar a tiempo sus rentas, asi como el pago oportuno de su ayudante, nos cometa que el oficio de mecanico automotriz es un poco dificil, y en ocaciones escasea el trabajo.
Para él no es dificil liquidar su credito, porque es una persona honesta y responsable, su reto es la competencia que hay entre los demás que se dedican a este oficio pero cuando se hace un buen trabajo no hay cliente que no lo reconozca.
La esperanza de Irineo es el tener algun dia su establecimiento propio, y ya no pagar renta, hacer crecer su equipo y herramientas de trabajo asi como el ampliar mas sus servicios, el nos dice que por el momento no tiene planes de casarse o comprometerce, ya que primero espera construir una base solida de trabajo para que el dia de mañana no sea tan dificil sostener una familia.
A Fundacion Realidad le da las gracias, al igual que a KIVA, esto por abrirle las puertas ya que para los hombres es un poco dificil encontrar un fianciamiento economico por parte de otras financieras.
