A loan of $900 helped to buy auto parts for resale.


Marcelino's story

Marcelino is 47 years old and has been an automobile electrician for more than 17 years. He lives with his wife in a home of his own, where he has his workshop. He has three school-aged children.

Marcelino has steady customers, thanks to several years experience. He supports his family this way and his wife also has a small food store that she runs out of the home. This generates a daily income so that they can feed their children. He considers himself to be a hard working man who puts forth a great deal of effort. He knows that work is the only way to get ahead and he dreams of having a large auto shop where he can repair cars.

He will use the money from this loan to buy replacement parts to resell. His life’s objective is to watch his children grow and strengthen themselves as individuals to be able to achieve their dreams.
