Alexander's story

Mr. Alexander, a mechanic by trade, has been doing this type of work for the past ten years. He has had his own business for the past two years. Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the help of his family, who motivate him each day in this difficult job. In the last few months, thanks to his work ethic and ability to deliver his customer requests, Mr. Alexander has begun to increase his customer base. From common customers to commercial transportation owners (microbuses and taxis), they all have come to his business. He still needs some necessary and essential tools for his auto shop such as a hydraulic floor jack and a block and tackle system that are large enough to allow him to work on microbuses and small trucks. Mr. Alexander has no loans with other organizations and has loyally committed himself to our community bank for a long time. Even though he has never had a loan, he has a well-known auto repair shop at the final bus stop of the Valparaiso 48 bus line. This is why his request for a loan was accepted.
