A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase materials and spare parts for his tire installation business.


Javier De Jesus's story

For six years, Javier has dedicated himself to his business of installing tires on all types of vehicles. He learned his trade from a friend who gave him work as an assistant when he was very young. Now, he is proud that he has 16 years of experience in this business and that, with this, he supports his wife and two children.

His need, in order to continue striving for his family’s quality of life, is to get capital for the purchase of materials for his business, such as patches, glue, valves, and other spare parts. He will, thus, have more profit from his business and better income since he has months where it is very difficult to generate enough income to cover his basic expenses. His dream is to have his own shop and the opportunity to employ more people and, thus, offer better service.
