A loan of $1,075 helped to buy more tools and to hire helpers.


Hector Colon's story

Héctor, age 61, is single and has three children. He has always liked cars, starting when he was little. Therefore, ever since he was a very young man he worked as a mechanic’s assistant. Héctor liked to fix cars, so he became independent 15 years ago. He now has his own mechanic shop. He works alone, but when he has big jobs he hires helpers. He works from 6:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. He wishes to buy more tools and to hire more people for his shop. He wants to use the loan to buy more tools and to have the money to hire helpers.
