Reynaldo Severo
Reynaldo is well known for his work by many professional drivers, who trust their taxis and minibuses to his experience and knowledge. He has two young children who still live with he and his wife, a loving mother who dedicates herself to household tasks. She waits for the children every day coming home from school with lunch ready while Reynaldo works all day at his auto repair shop. Reynaldo knows everything there is to know about automobiles because he has worked in repair shops learning the trade since he was very young. This makes him very proud because it is his main source of income to provide for his family. He is requesting the loan to stock his shop with new tools, since he has had his current ones for some time and they are worn from daily use. These tools as wells as a hydraulic jack are essential to his shop. Reynoldo wears a big smile when he says that his children plan to follow in his footsteps, but they want to study mechanical engineering and have a big repair shop.
