A loan of $1,075 helped to service a washing machine and to buy a new one.


Ernesto's story

Ernesto is a micro entrepreneur who is noted for the way he carries out his business. Several years ago facing a difficult economic situation and without stable employment, he decided to start his own business. He leases washing machines to his neighbors and customers who need this service. He works from 7am until 4pm approximately because he spends his free time doing what he’s most passionate about: painting.

With the hope of continuing to make progress, Ernesto wants to buy a new washing machine and to service the one he already owns in order to provide better, higher quality and more efficient service. However, he does not have the necessary amount of money to do so and is asking for a loan to buy a new washing machine and to service the one he already has to better position himself in the marketplace. His income will increase and his quality of life will improve.
