Jesus's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to upgrade his shop equipment.
At 22, Jesus attended community college and became a certified mechanic in his hometown of Mexico City. Today, at 60, he lives in El Paso, Texas, and operates his own business, L-Garage. When he first started in business, Jesus rented a facility and picked up on the trade he learned in his native country. He soon began attracting regular customers who returned time and time again to his shop. After 25 years of entrepreneurship, Jesus visited an ACCION Texas Inc. office in his neighborhood, inquired about a loan, and was approved. This is his first loan with ACCION, and he plans to use the funds to update his shop’s equipment. At L-Garage, Jesus employees three other mechanics and plans to hire more as his business expands.
