Don Bosco Group's story

Zenón has participated in the Don Bosco Communal Bank for over three years. The eight members are very responsible people who work very hard in their businesses. Their main objective, among others, is to give the best of themselves to their loved ones.

Zenón is a pensioner who worked in the mine for many years. With the money that he received as severance pay he bought a piece of land, which he built on. Later, he also got a car with the intention of renting it. At first this business went well for him. Later, he had to sell it because of an accident with his vehicle.

Repairing it was very expensive. Therefore, this time he bought a “motocarro” (three wheeled motorized vehicle). So far he has not had any problems with it, and he performs maintenance on it every month. The income from renting it is good. It covers his family’s food expenses. It also pays for part of the education of his grandson, a mechanical engineer.

The loan will be used for a small electrical shop that he will set up in his house, where he will help his son. That is where they will fix cell phones, radios, and computers, among other things. He needs the loan to buy accessories and replacement parts for this equipment.
