Will Alfredo
Will Alfredo, 43, is married and his wife devotes herself to the household. He has four male children, two of whom live in the United States, and also a daughter who lives at home and devotes herself to her studies. For 13 years Don Will has earned a living selling spare parts and repairing motorcycles. He learned this line of business thanks to a cousin of his who had a workshop and allowed him to work there. Thanks to that opportunity, Don Will learned many things, and after a time decided to make a go of it for himself and set up his own shop. It was not at all easy since he didn't have certain tools and had to go around asking to borrow them, and sometimes they would loan them out and sometimes they wouldn't. But with God's help and the support of his family he has been able to get ahead, and has bought the tools most necessary for carrying out his work. Currently one of the difficulties he is going through is that he doesn't have work every day.

Don Will needs the loan he is seeking for buying spare parts such as tires, grills, oil, grease, cables, brake pads, etc. He hopes that the loan will help him stock his business so he can sell his customers what they need. His goal is to stay healthy because as long as God gives him life and health, he will be able to keep working to support his family. For him, his family is the most important thing, and as long as they are together, any obstacle that presents itself may be overcome. This is his first cycle with FAMA and he expects to comply with his commitment to make payments in a punctual way.

Will Alfredo tiene 43 años de edad, es casado y su esposa se dedica a los quehaceres del hogar, tiene cuatro hijos varones, dos de los cuales viven en Estados Unidos y tambien tiene una hija mujer que vive en su casa y se dedica a estudiar. Desde hace 13 años atras Don Will se dedica a la venta de repuestos y reparacion de motocicletas, aprendió este oficio gracias a un primo de él que tenia un taller y le permitió trabajar alli. Gracias a esa oportunidad, don Will aprendió muchas cosas y luego de un tiempo decidió aventurarse e instaló su propio taller, aunque no le fue nada facil ya que no contaba con ciertas herramientas y tenia que andar quitando prestado y a veces se las prestaban y otras veces no. Pero con la ayuda de Dios y el apoyo de su familia ha podido salir adelante y ha comprado las herramientas mas necesarias para desempeñar su trabajo. Actualmente uno de las dificultades que esta atravesando es que no todos los dias tiene trabajo. El prestamo que solicita don Will lo necesita para comprar repuestos como ser llantas, parrillas, aceite, grasa, cables, fricciones, etc. Espero que con el apoyo de este prestamo pueda surtir su negocio y asi ofrecer al cliente lo que el necesita. Su meta es mantenerse saludable porque mientras Dios le de vida y salud, él podrá seguir trabajando para sostener a su familia. Para él su familia es lo mas importante y mientras esten juntos cualquier obstaculos que se les presente podran vencerlo. Es su primer ciclo en FAMA y espera poder con su compromiso de pago de forma puntual.
