A loan of $1,000 helped buy tools.


Ernesto's story

Ernesto lives in the Brígada y Cuarto Anillo neighborhool in the northern area of the city of Santa Cruz. He is a mechanic, and he has his own shop at his house. He has been working as a mechanic for four years. He works with his brother, and they have a helper.

The loan is to make the last payment on a vehicle purchase, which helps him in his shop, and to buy tools. Ernesto is getting more customers, and his goal is to expand his shop in order to provide better service. He is putting forth a lot of effort to do so, and he is very hard-working and responsible.

He is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust shown by granting the loan.
