Juan Antonio's story

Don Juan is 42 years old. He's married and has three children. He has 23 years' worth of experience in repairing and painting vehicles. He learned this trade because he started working in an auto repair shop as an assistant, since he was very young and unfamiliar with it. However, later on he learned the business very well and set up his own shop where he employs young people who wish to learn the trade.
The loan he requests from Fundación Campo is to purchase eight gallons of putty, two gallons of paint, electrodes, saws, discs, among other items. With the loan Don Juan will be able to buy the supplies in bulk, so that he can get more accessible prices. He'll also save time by not having to travel so often to the town where he buys the supplies. Besides, with the supplies in his shop Don Juan will be able to tackle any job that comes in, because he'll have the supplies to do it. His goal is to build a larger shop and get protection from the rain.
