A loan helped to buy spare tires, cables, rims, paint and wrenches.


Alberto's story

Alberto has repaired bicycles and motorcycles since he was 22-years old. Currently, he has 40 years of experience working in this trade. His inspiration is his two children, who also help out at the tire-repair shop. He's a strong, hard-working man who wants to accomplish as much as he can.

Alberto is requesting a Kiva loan through MiCrédito to buy spare tires, cables, rims, paint and wrenches in order to service his clients and resolve their repairs. By having all the equipment he needs, he'll be able to generate good income.

In the near future, Alberto is planning to turn his tire-repair shop into a paint shop for cars and a high-end car wash.
