A loan of $1,000 helped purchasing packages of springs and supplies.


Constancio's story

Constancio has an auto repair shop and has made a living from this activity for a long time. Through his hard work he has managed to equip his shop, which is now one of the most popular shops among drivers in the El Tejar neighborhood. Constancio lives in a rented apartment, but wants to have his own house—that is why he works from morning until night so that he can save money. He puts in his maximum effort in order to have a better future, which will include starting a family. Constancio first learned his trade while working as an assistant when he was very young. He began working with the Unión La Portada solidarity group and the Emprender organization because he could take out an individual loan, and this is the seventh loan cycle in which he has not fallen behind in his payments; over time he has made sufficient progress so that he can now purchase a vehicle in order to increase his income. He will use the money from the loan to purchase packages of various springs in bulk. Constancio is very grateful to the organization for the help it has provided.
