David's story

David C. is 46 years old. He is married and has children who are 18, 16, 8, and 6 years old. They live in their own house, located in Paraisal cantón, Concepción Batres jurisdiction, Usulután department. David and his sons had aspirations to get ahead in life, so one day they went to a friend who is the owner of a motorcycle repair shop so he could teach them this occupation. Over time they learned well and David decided to open his own motorcycle repair shop in his house with the help of his two oldest sons. The shop has been open for three years and they now have their own clientele. With the income obtained from this business, he has been able to support his family and pay for the schooling of his younger children. David doesn’t have sufficient money at this time, which is why he is requesting a loan that he will invest in buying replacement parts and tools for the motorcycles. David dreams of expanding his shop so that he can have more customers who look for his services.
