A loan of $375 helped to buy supplies for his mechanic's workshop.

Jorge Ricardo's story

Señor Jorge is 49 years old. He has children who are already grown and financially independent, and he lives in his own home, located in the city of Encarnación.

Señor Jorge is a mechanic. He has had a workshop in his home for the last several years, where he does bodywork and painting. He has been working in this field for a while, as it is his vocation. He says that he has a good customer base, and that many of his neighbors come to repair their vehicles in his workshop.

He considers himself to be a very hard-working and enterprising man, who in spite of setbacks, has been able to move ahead in life with his business. He comments that everything that he has done is to give his family a better style of life.

One of his dreams is to be able to expand his workshop, so that he can take on more customers.

He is requesting the loan to buy supplies for his workshop, as in this way he will be able to deliver on any of his customers' orders.
