A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a motorcycle.

Casto's story

Casto, 25, has a small 5 year-old son. He is a bricklayer who works in construction and remodels houses. He lives in the town of El Torno. This is his first loan from the institution.

Casto will use this loan to buy a motorcycle, which is something he needs very much, because it will allow him to do his work in a more efficient manner. He has contracts to complete, and this will allow him to get around more quickly to his work sites, because he has long distances that he has to travel. He is in a rural area where the distances are long between the towns and the road is not in good condition for cars, and so a motorcycle would be very useful. His reason for requesting this loan is so that he can continue to improve in his work.

Casto is a very hardworking person who feels happy about the credit opportunity that he is getting, because this is the only activity he has that allows him to support himself.
