A loan of $825 helped to buy a pressure machine to wash vehicles.


Moises Antonio's story

Moisés Antonio is a hardworking person who works seven days a week, from six in the morning until seven at night, in his car washing business. He has only one employee and they both work hard during their day. Among his principal customers are those with motorcycles, motorcycle taxis and cars. Now he serves 25 daily clients. He wants to increase the capacity of his business, so as to be able to satisfy his clients and the demand for the service of washing vehicles and in this way gain more interested clients. This will permit him to increase his business and give his clientele good care. He is married and has two children, a six-month-old girl and a six-year-old boy, who attends school. He has had a loan from Ceprodel in the beginning of 2011. He invested the previous loan in supplies like air fresheners, soaps and grease remover. At this moment he is applying for new financing since he has the need to buy a high-pressure machine that will permit him to wash vehicles in less time and with better quality. In the photo, he is washing the motorcycle with this machine. In this way he will obtain a better income to sustain his family and for this he is grateful to Ceprodel and to Kiva for the support that they provide him.
