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.

El Sr.Alexander, Mecánico de Oficio, biene desarrollando esta actividad desde hace 10 años atrás y de forma independiente desde hace 2 años aproximadamente, claro que esto no hubiera sido posible sin la ayuda de su familia los cuales son su impulso diario en esta muy dificil labor. En los ultimos meses y gracias a su desempeño y entrega constante a su trabajo Don Alexander empezó a incrementar su clientela, desde clientes comunes hasta transportista del sector urbano (Micros y Taxis), motivo por el cual se acercó a nuestras oficinas ya que el todavia no contaba con algunas herramientas necesarias e impresindibles en su taller tales como una tecla y un caimán lo suficientemente grandes como para poder trabajar con micros y camiones pequeños. Don Alexander no cuenta con Créditos en otras Instituciones y biene trabajando fielmente con nosotros desde hace ya un tiempo atráz, además de aquello cuenta con domicilio conocido por la Parada final de las lineas 48 Valparaiso, motivo por el cual no se le negó dicho crédito.
