A loan of $1,200 helped purchase inventory to sell in his auto repair shop.


Eric's story

Sr. Eric P. A. is 36 years old and has been separated from his wife for more than 10 years. He was living in Cochabamba when his wife literally left him with nothing (she had taken all the furniture and household appliances). Eric found the will to overcome and start a new life. Fate brought him to Ivirgarzama where he was inspired to open a new workshop that was simple and modest.


Eric repairs headlight and taillight covers made of plastic and fiberglass. He also sells small automotive parts such as turn signals, brake lights, headlights, and other items. Eric is confident in his ability to improve his business and have a better life. In the near future, he hopes to rebuild his life and start a new family.


The loan he is requesting will be used to buy merchandise to expand his shop so that he can generate more revenue and offer better service to his customers.
