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


Paulino's story

Paulino is 23 years old, married and has a one-year-old son. He works in construction and renovating houses, and is a contractor. He lives in the town of El Torno. This loan is his first with the institution.

Paulino is going to use this loan to buy a motorcycle, as this will allow him to carry out his work more efficiently. He has contracts to fulfill, and this will allow him to get around quickly to his construction sites, as the distances he has to travel are long.

His reason for requesting this loan is to continue improving in his work. Paulino is going to use the profits to buy tools for his work, as the ones he has are wearing out, and he needs to replace them to do a better job.

Paulino is a very hard-working person. He feels happy about the opportunity offered him in the granting of the loan, as this livelihood is his only means of supporting himself.
