Alexandre Antonio
Alexandre, 57, has a body shop. He lives in an urban neighborhood called "Las Orquídeas” which is so named because when it was discovered there were many orchid flowers there.

Years ago he started learning his trade gradually in a workshop. As a result of his efforts, he was able to have his own workshop in his house to support his family. Now he works from very early in the morning to finish all of his work. He repairs the auto bodies, paints the cars, and delivers them ready to drive.

Now he wants to have a loan to buy raw materials such as paints and metal. In the future, he wants to rebuild his house and workshop to give a better life to his daughters.
