He’s a father and this makes him concerned for his loved ones. He’s a responsible, tenacious, hardworking man who is also attentive and service oriented. This helps him carry out his activities because he works at one of the country’s beaches with his boat transporting people form one side to the other. This is how he sets out every morning to work the best way he knows how so his home will not lack daily bread.
He needs to buy spare parts for his boat but does not have the capital to do so which is why he’s called on Integral to request a loan to buy spare parts needed so that he and his boat can continue providing the service his customers deserve. He gives thanks in advance for the help he’s to receive.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of a pilot project Apoyo Integral is launching in conjunction with several local NGOs to support at-risk youth and their families with funding from Kiva. This loan product is tailored to young people who find themselves in high-risk situations because they are located in areas affected by extreme violence. Loans are combined with vocational, technical, and financial training to help these young people develop business ideas that will help them generate income, reintegrate into society, and support their dreams of being productive and contributing members of society.
Due to potential safety risks facing these youth, some of the loans are being disbursed to their parents in order to protect their identities. For the same reason, the faces of some Apoyo Integral borrowers may be blurred in photos. Apoyo Integral appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to provide much-needed support to at-risk Salvadoran youth.
