A loan of $450 helped to purchase tools to provide a better service.

Juan Alberto's story

Mr. Juan H. has worked as a mechanic for 20 years. The greatest challenge he is faced with is that he does not have the resources to be able to purchase materials for the service that he offers, and this has caused his work to decline, which affects not only his business but also his family, because there is less money for food. On the other hand, he is also affected by the conditions in which he works, which are not safe enough. Currently, he is renting the workshop where he works, and his dream is to be able to buy it some day. He started up this small business thanks to the support that his father provided him. Previously, he had sold fruit and vegetables in the streets of his municipality. He has a family of four children and a wife who works and helps him with basic domestic expenses, such as water and electricity, among others. With this loan, he will purchase the necessary tools to be able to do his job well. He thanks this institution for making possible these improvements to his work.
