Hernan's story

Hernan is married, has two children and has approximately 40 years experience as a mechanic. Thanks to his father having worked in this area, he learnt about being a mechanic from a very young age and has always worked this way. He is now recognised as providing very high quality work which has allowed him to improve his income over time and in this way to offer his family a better quality of life, and overcome the financial difficulties at home.

Thanks to an opportunity he had around 6 months ago he has become independent and now has his own mechanics workshops where he can create two jobs for 2 people, which are very much needed. However since in his workshop there is a problem with the roof, this has been causing him financial problems. For this reason Hernan is asking for a loan to repair the roof of his workshop so that he can provide a better quality service.

His biggest dream is to be able to improve his own workshop and offer his family a better quality of life and better economic opportunities moving forward.
