A loan of $900 helped to buy a scanner for his machine shop..


David's story

David has been a mechanic for 20 years and has worked independently for the past year in the Bajo Olivo zone. He was born in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra and learned how to be a mechanic while still very young.

Today he owns his own machine shop and his services are highly sought after by taxis in the area (Santos Dumont Avenue and other places).

The loan that will be granted will be used to buy a scanner that will help him detect and repair electrical engine problems more quickly.

In the future he wants his business to grow much more and he needs to enlarge his facility for this to happen.

He currently has a van that helps him transport his tools and provide emergency assistance to some of his customers when they have engine failures.
