Support Manuel in his efforts to provide affordable car repair services to his community in Miami Florida. Manuel emigrated from Peru in 1999 to pursue the American Dream. Since his arrival, he has worked in multiple mechanic shops, most recently as a Senior Mechanic at a large dealership. His dream, since arrival, was to become an entrepreneur and start his own business. This came true two years ago when he established his own Auto Tech business, an auto/vehicle repair shop that provides a variety of maintenance, upgrade, and repair services.

Manuel is humble and a constant contributor to his community. Currently, he provides free repair services to single mothers, in an effort to assist those brave and struggling women. But his efforts do not end there. As his business grows, he wants to provide economic support to impoverished youth in Peru.

Beyond supporting Manuel’s immediate and extended family, the business also employs two people. This loan will help Manuel purchase equipment that will allow him to expand his services. In specific, the loan will allow him to purchase programming equipment that he needs in order to service expanded car brands and provide higher quality service.
