A loan of $800 helped to buy tools for his workshop.

Alexander's story

Alexander is a mechanic by trade, and has been pursuing this work over a ten-year period and has been on his own for about two years. Of course this would not have been possible without the help of his family who were his daily motivation in this very difficult enterprise.

In recent months, thanks to his performance and constant self-sacrifice, Alexander began to increase his client base from his usual clients to the urban sector (buses and taxis). This is why he has approached the communal bank. He does not have some of the necessary and essential tools in his workshop such as a block and tackle hoist or an alligator wrench big enough to be able to work with buses and small trucks. In order to buy these tools he is asking for a loan.

Alexander does not have loans with other organizations and he has been working conscientiously with us for some time. He is a very hard working person with the desire to succeed, and dreams of improving the quality of life for himself and his family.
