Salvador is 45 years old and married to Norma Bordón, who is 47 years old and a housewife. They have two children, a daughter who is 15 years old and a son who is 12 years old. The two of them are enrolled in secondary school thanks to the work of their parents. Salvador learned the trade of auto-body repairman from his uncle, with whom he began working when he was very young. Later he became independent by setting up his own garage of auto repair with a lot of effort. The garage does well for him thanks to his good service and guaranteed work. The hope of the loan is to buy a compressor that will be of much use for his job and the satisfaction of his clients.
