A loan of $400 helped to buy tires.

Jackelin's story

Forming a very young home, Jackelin is 19 years old and part of the start of a new family history at the side of her partner Saul and her little Andrea who is 1 year old. Currently they are situated in a rented house that her mother is offering them. As part of starting conjugal life she chose together with Saul to start their own business because of the fact that it was necessary to offer a good quality of life to their little one.

It's like this thanks to the experience that her partner acquired throughout his life as an assistant in an automobile workshop, completing until today 2 years of unstoppable work. Daily his workshop received visits from various drivers of the locale because they are trustworthy people and because they are in a much traveled street where vehicles circulate that travel around the rural zones of his region. It's like this that thanks to this self-sacrificing work they are able to forge a livelihood that benefits their young family.

In order to expand their business they have planned to acquire tires to be sold because of the fact that some customers don't use these repaired components, hoping in this way to obtain good profits later. In the future they want to purchase a plot of land and later build a house in order in this way to complete the famous saying "casado casa quiere" [the married want a house] according to her very happy comment. This is her first granted loan for which she feels very happy and peaceful in turn. She shows her firm commitment to work from now on with her communal bank and to be punctual to meetings. With the 1,000 PEN she will complement her working capital destined for the purchase of tires.
