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

Raul Vicente's story

Raul is 49 years old and is from Duran, Ecuador. He is married to Rosa who helps him with his business and with caring for their two children who study in public school. Since he was a child, Raul's father was the one who taught him everything about trucks and how to be a mechanic, and this is the work he currently does. He does this work from his home every day, from morning until night, as it is a fundamental part of his income. Raul tells us that one of his biggest fears with his business is delinquency, as he has many expensive and useful tools like large machinary which he is not able to store inside, which makes them potential targets of robbery. With this loan he will buy grease, tools, and products to have in inventory. His dream is to be able to have a larger shop in the center of Duran, and later to be able to have various branches of his business.
