A loan of $900 helped tires, tubes.


Yefferson Stalin's story

Yefferson, age 33, lives in a canton called Playas, one of Ecuador's tourist locations which has diverse marine life. Yefferson inherited a tire repair shop (a small workshop for repairing cars that his father left him), as he learned this work from a very young age to make his living. He has worked in his repair shop for eleven years, and has always worked from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. He charges $5.00 for tire changes, $3.00 for a patch, $20.00 for an oil change, etc. He has many hopes for the future, and so he wants this loan in order to keep working and buy tires and tubes, among other items. In the future he wants to have a large vehicle maintenance business.
