A loan of $1,000 helped to buy spare parts for cars.


Rosendo Justiano's story

Rosendo is 41 years old and has a car repair shop. He lives with his wife and two children in a community called Playas, one of Ecuador's tourist sites with a diverse offering of seafood. He started fixing cars working in a workshop for three years, but in order to have his own business and be independent he had to get out and start working for himself. He set up a car repair shop 18 years ago and he now works from 8:00am to 6:00pm every day. He straightens, paints and repairs the damage to the cars. With this loan he wants to buy parts for the cars he fixes and thus increase his income. In the future you wants to sell spare parts in his workshop to make it more convenient for his customers.
