A loan of $1,500 helped to buy construction materials to build a garage for his shop.

Jaime Luis's story

Jaime, 33, is the father of a three-year-old child. He lives in the city of Estelí and is a mechanic.

He learned this trade at a very young age. When he turned 18 he decided to set up his own business. With a first loan he began to buy tools and look for customers. Little by little his shop became known. His shop is on the patio of his house.

He wants to better equip his business and hire people so his shop serves as a school and a job. He's requesting the loan to buy construction materials such as cement, sand, and concrete blocks to build a garage for his shop because he doesn't have the space to accommodate his customers' cars.
