A loan of $1,200 helped buy vulcanization equipment to offer tire changing and tire repair.


Macario's story

"I have had my own mechanic's shop for 2 years. There is no one who has the equipment to vulcanise rubber in this area, so I'd like to buy this equipment , which would allow me to offer my clients tire changing and tire repair. Offering this service would bring me more clients. I am applying for a loan for $1200.00 dollars to buy vulcanization equipment."

Translated from Spanish by Erin Corcoran, Kiva volunteer.


“Tengo mi taller mecánico desde hace 2 años, por ese sector no hay una vulcanizadora y a mi me gustaría comprar aparatos que me permitan también darles a mis clientes ese servicio de cambio y reparación de llantas ya que así mi taller tendrá más clientela. Solicito $ 1,200.00 dlls para comprar equipo para vulcanizar."
