Samuel Anibal's story

Without a large supply of capital, Samuel decided to set up his business, with which he would be able to generate the income necessary to support his household, where he lives with his only son. Samuel has worked for approximately 4 years in his automotive services business, in which he offers lubrication, washing, mounting tires, repairing tires, and oil changes, and thanks to this he has been able to win a large number of customers because of the good service that he offers. In his business, Samuel has placed the hope that this will offer him the opportunity to overcome the great adversities that life has presented him. In addition, he hopes that he will thus be able to offer his son a better quality of life. With the intention of being able to make his work go more smoothly and avoid possible health consequences because of his work, Samuel is seeking a loan that will offer him the opportunity to purchase a machine with which he can do the work of dismounting and mounting tires without having to exert so much force, which is harmful to his health, and which can do it in less time, so that he will thus have the capacity to serve more customers.

Samuel hopes that in this way his income will grow considerably, since he will be able to serve a large number of customers, which he did not have enough time to do in the past. In addition, with the machine he will be able to have a rest from the great efforts that are needed in his business. Samuel dreams of having a large automotive service business and wants to add a shop where he can sell oil and spare parts for cars.
