A loan of $1,000 helped purchase tools.


Sergio Alberto's story

Sergio is 30 years old and resides in Concepción Batres in the Department of Usulután. He lives with his wife and two children (ages 2 and 1). Sergio performs auto paint and body work in his own shop. He has owned his business for five years and learned this job while working at other repair shops. At his business, Sergio has two employees who help him. He has had difficulty acquiring the capital to invest in the parts and tools he needs for his work.


The loan he is requesting will be used to buy the necessary tools to perform his job. With this investment, Sergio will be prepared to meet the demands of his customers and provide them better service. His aspirations include having the necessary equipment for his work, providing better service, expanding and stabilizing his business, and improving his family’s conditions so that they will have everything they need to develop.
