A loan of $1,000 helped lubricants, oils.


Juan Richard's story

Juan, who is 19 years old, has an automobile lube workshop. He lives in an urban area called “Las Orquídeas” (The Orchids). It got it name because when it was discovered, there where many orchids there.

He began working as a lube technician in an auto repair workshop, but for a lack of opportunities there he decided to open his own lube shop, since he enjoys that profession. Little by little, and with a good deal of effort, he has been able to build up a clientele and earn enough money to support his daughter. He now works from 8:00am to 6:00pm.

With the loan, he wants to purchase automobile lubricants and oils to be able to give better service to his customers. In the future, he wants to have an automobile service company.
