Carlos Ernesto's story

Carlos Ernesto H. G. is 38 years old and is a very hardworking person who is dedicated to what he does. He lives with his mother, who is completely dependent upon him, and he also helps her with all of the household chores. Carlos owns an auto mechanic and body shop, which is located in the house where he lives in the municipality of Soyapango. He has been doing this type of work for 17 years and has gained a lot of experience in the trade. This experience gives him an advantage in doing excellent work for his customers, who are very satisfied with the service he provides.


Carlos is requesting a loan so that he can buy materials for his shop such as sandpaper, paint, tools, and other supplies. He does all of this with the great desire of be able to earn more because this is the only source of income that his family has. This is why Carlos works hard to do excellent work so that he can provide everything necessary for his mother.
