A loan of $700 helped to buy spare parts and lubricants.


Víctor Manuel's story

Victor Manuel is 44 years old and lives with his 55 year old wife and two children, ages 22 and 26, in a home of his own. With great effort, he has managed to support his children through university. They have already managed to find work and pay their own expenses and some of the household expenses. Many years ago he started an auto repair shop and thanks to the income from the business, he has managed to get his family ahead. Currently he continues to get income from his shop as he has no other source of income and this is the only way he knows to earn an honest living. He wants to give his children a little push and watch them become great professionals with better opportunities than the ones he had. With the vision of improving the family’s financial situation and in order to help a little more with his children’s studies, he has decided to request this loan through INTEGRAL, so that he can invest in his business and buy spare parts and lubricants so that he can better serve his customers when they need him. He expects that this will allow him to give increased stability to his business and continue to bring in the income that helps him support his family so much.
