Osvaldo's story

Osvaldo is from the city of Curuguaty. He is the owner of a repair shop for motorcycles and chainsaws. He says that he has been doing this work for seven years, so he already has a good clientele.

He is a person with a strong desire to succeed, and that is why he works hard. It is precisely thanks to that work that his business is growing. His goal is to be able to continue working and that way be a well-known mechanic in the area,

He is requesting the loan to purchase tools he wishes to use in his workshop, so that he can give good service to his customers.
