Francisco Javier's story

Francisco is 27 years old and lives in the city of León. He has a 4-year-old son who attends Kindergarten while Francisco works. Francisco is a car mechanic. He learned this trade from his father, who taught him to repair cars. When he was 14 years old he specialized in school in auto mechanics. Afterwards he decided to set up his own auto repair shop and also learned how to solder.

He will use the loan to purchase a compressor and tools for his work repairing cars. He needs tools because they help him repair the cars well and modern machinery that helps him do the body work on the cars. His goal is to improve the structure of his garage so he can protect his parts inventory.
