View original language description ↓
Adriel is 60 years old and the father of 5 children, 4 of which are independent. He now lives with his wife, Margarita, and his youngest son, for who he works very hard. Adriel offers services as a mechanic, 24 hours a day. Because of his excellent work, he is very busy and does not find it difficult to work at any hour, since his shop is in his own home. He has been a mechanic for 8 years, and feels pleased, since little by little he has purchased the tools he needs for work. Sometimes he has to get up in the middle of the night to tend to a customer, but he does it happily. He works to cover the daily cost of living and to support his son who is studying. Adriel is requesting this loan to expand his business, as well as investing in some other tools. In the future he wants to have his home rebuilt and ensure it has all the comforts for his wife and son.
