A loan of $1,250 helped to purchase replacement automobile parts.


Marcelino's story

Marcelino is 48 years old, and lives in the city of Itá with his wife, Agripina, and their three children. Marcelino has been working as an automobile electrician for 18 years. He has his own workshop and a consistent customer base, and his brothers help him in the shop. In addition to his auto shop, Marcelino also farms some parcels of land, and monitors his crops every week.

Marcelino plans to use the support from this loan to purchase replacement car parts for working on his clients' vehicles. He hopes this investment will help him increase his replacement parts stock as well as the amount of work he can accomplish for his clients.
