A loan of $300 helped to buy cement, rebar and metal sheeting to better equip his shop.


Oscar Jose's story

Oscar, 49, is a mechanic by profession. He’s the father of four children and he’s from Estelí. He started this activity while still very young. The business was started by his father and when he died he left it to him. He’s spent most of his life in this business and supports his family by means of it. He pays for his children’s schooling and keeps his mechanic services active.

He wants to make some improvements to his shop’s infrastructure; part of the roof is damaged and he also does not have a way of providing security for his customers’ vehicles so he will invest in buying building materials and supplies like cement, rebar and metal sheeting to better equip his shop. This will allow his business to have a better appearance as well as to provide security for his customers’ vehicles.
