A loan of $575 helped buy tools and spare parts.


Alonso's story

Alonso is 33 years old and one of the best in his trade. His self-discipline and dedication has taught him that dreams can come true and that no barriers exist apart from those that we limit ourselves with. Since he was a boy he has been passionate about electronics and although he could never go to university due to his family's economic activity, this was not an obstacle to him learning the trade. With the help of friends and acquaintances, he managed to become an expert in repairing electronic appliances, which has allowed him to provide his wife and 3 year old daughter with a decent living. His biggest wish is to be able to improve the service in his business. Because of this he is asking for a loan so that he can buy the necessary tools and spare parts to carry out his work efficiently.
