Mariano De Jesus's story

Mariano is 50 years old and he lives in San Miguel, alone with his wife. He worked in an automotive body shop for 10 years but he later decided to set up his own shop. And he has now been in business for 3 years. He works every day from 7am to 6pm, and to date he has not faced any difficulties.

He requests a loan to purchase a compressor. He needs this tool to carry out his work. With the help of this loan he will be able to acquire this tool which will facilitate doing quality work.

As for his business, the goal is to acquire more tools whenever there is an opportunity in order to better equip his shop with everything that he needs to work. He also wants to improve his family's living conditions and to provide for their monthly expenses.
