A loan of $1,200 helped the purchase of lubricants and a car wash machine.


Gabriela's story

Miss Gabriela works at a car wash, oil change and maintenance shop. She lives in the home of her brother- and sister-in-law in the Virgen de Copacabana development, which is best known for the Codavisa area, and she rents a shop in the Cota Cota zone, a more favourable location for her business. She still has some of her merchandise and customers, but her sister-in-law now attends to them. Gabriela has a husband who works in the interior of the country. They have two children whom she cares for. She is a very hard-working woman who is eager to work. With this loan she will purchase merchandise such as lubricants and also a motor to use in the car wash. She is very grateful for the offered opportunity.
