A loan of $10,000 helped tools, equipment, and advertising.


Obdulia's story

Obdulia helped support her family with an office job in electronics while her husband worked as a car mechanic. When Obdulia was laid off, she saw an opportunity to combine her office experience with her husband’s automotive skills. Using their savings, they opened Family Auto Repair together in 2007. But their savings were not enough to cover essential tools and advertising, and Obdulia’s application for a bank line of credit was denied, leaving them unable to make key investments in their business.
A $10,000 loan enables Obdulia to build her business because she will be able to pay for the tools they need and advertise Family Auto Repair’s services to the community.
