A loan of $400 helped to buy sheet metal.


Carlos Borromeo's story

Carlos lives with his wife and two children who are 15 and 3 years of age. He runs a car body and paint shop. He’s been working in this shop for 15 years and learned by working in other shops. He’s owned the business for the last five years and he has three employees. He’s open to the public from 7:30am until 5pm or according to customer demand.

He’s asking for a loan to buy supplies he needs to build a completely sealed, oven-like room to be able to use to paint cars in when there’s little sunshine. He will enclose the room with metal sheeting to retain the heat and be able to do his work this way. The loan will be of use because he’ll have the economic resources to carry out the project thus improving customer service. His hope is to grow in his business, to acquire new customers and that building this room will lead to the functionality he needs.
