A loan of $800 helped to buy metal and paint.

Angel Alfredo's story

Ángel has an auto body repair and paint shop in his garage at home. He lives with his wife and daughter in El Paraíso, a hilly periurban neighborhood in Guayaquil with unpaved streets.

For many years he worked with a relative that had a body shop but he wanted to become independent and have his own business so he refurbished his garage and set up an auto body and paint shop there 30 years ago. He works from 9am on repairing cars that have been destroyed in crashes.

He will use the loan to buy metal and pain to repair more cars. In the future he wants to have more customers to increase his work.
