A loan of $1,575 helped to buy solder, paint and grease.

Hergenes Ruperto's story

Ruperto, 52, has aspirations that in the coming years his mechanics workshop will prosper. His story began 20 years ago with his first company job. Later he was let go and started his own workshop. He works alone, rising at 6:00am to open his workshop. Petty crime can be a problem. He is married and his wife stays at home with their 3 children. His biggest dream is to finish building his house, which he started with foundation and pillars. For that reason he wants a loan for his mechanics shop so that he can buy solder, paint and grease.
