Jose Joaquin's story

José is 37 years old. He has his own house here he lives with his family. He has a workshop and bicycle shop. He started the business 10 years ago and has experience because he inherited the business from his father, who taught him all about repairing bicycles.

At present, he needs a loan to buy tools and replacement parts for the workshop. He needs wrenches, saws, brakes, pedals, wheels and spokes, among other things that he offers his customers. This loan will help his strengthen the workshop and be more competent.

His aspirations are to offer his family more stable living conditions, and to have a more comfortable workplace. That is why he is working to keep his workshop supplied.
