A loan of $1,075 helped to buy tools.

Manuel Silvino's story

Manuel learned to work as a mechanic from the age of 15, beginning as an assistant in a shop where he had the opportunity to learn and gain confidence. Four years ago he decided to open his own shop because he enjoys the work and the most important thing for him is to be independent. He works together with an assistant from 8 o'clock int the morning until 6 o'clock in the evening. Because the shop is still rather new, he needs to acquire tools to improve his service. This is how he will use the loan for which he has applied. His goal for the future is to purchase a car to start a taxi service and to move his shop to his home, thereby improving his economic situation as he will no longer be renting.
