Víctor's story

Victor, 47, is a very hard working man. He feels that the progress of his family is his responsibility as head of the household. Therefore, he has tried to give his family the necessary living conditions for their well being. Since he was a young man he has specialized in repairing domestic electric appliances. He previously gained experience working in various shops until he was able to set up his own repair shop. Victor has his small shop in a central area of his region. He works from nine in the morning until eight at night. His 20 years of working in the area have allowed him to win his customers’ confidence due to his professional capacity and his great sense of humor. He is now planning to rent a larger place, but he will have to increase his income because the rent will be more. Through his community bank he has had ten loans with Microfinanzas PRISMA. Together with his colleagues they have know how to develop and improve their capabilities. They engage in activities that help the group progress. The 2,500 PEN that he is asking for is to buy some tools that he needs to speed up the repairs on the appliances that are brought to his shop every day.
