Alex's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped my workshop to update our diagnostic system and recovering jobs lost due pandemic.

Alex's story

Together with my former partner Richie, we started this great adventure in 2014 that we decided to call Rockets Garage. We are from two different cultures, but we have the same passion for cars. I grew up in Mexico City and following the legacy of my Grandfather and my father, I was captivated by cars and their components from a very young age, I spent time in my grandfather's workshop, trying to imitate what he did in real cars with A tricycle that he himself had given me, it motivated me to learn more how the systems work and thus be part of the talks after dinner exposing faults and solutions, that they exchanged according to their experience. I was inspired to study Aeronautical Engineering at the University, with conviction I decided to follow that legacy of my dad, then I met my second wife Rosario and I immediately knew that the two of us would make an excellent work team. Rosario is fascinated by the diagnostic tool and equipment and knowing that we both have the same dreams, in January 2019 we bought Rockets Garage in its entirety, as a heritage and symbol of mutual commitment. In the business we have grown a lot learning from other workshops the administrative and financial management, saving and carefully reinvesting part of our profits and sharing observations, and learning from our own experience. We do not have children among us but we are very proud to support the young community who want to learn the marvels of this trade by teaching two courses per year, as well as being able to practice what they have learned and earn a small income from the work they have done.
