A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a motorcycle.

Juan Carlos's story

Juan is 25 years old, makes a living through construction and remodelling houses as a contract mason, and lives in the town of El Torno.

This loan is his first cycle with the institution. Juan is going to use the loan to buy a motorcycle because this will allow him to do his job in a more efficient manner since he has contracts to complete, and a motorcycle will help him move quickly to his jobs which are long distances away. His reason for asking for the loan is to continue improving his work.

Juan is going to use the profits to buy tools for his job since those that he has are wearing out and he needs to renew them to do a better job. Juan is a very hard-working person who is happy for the opportunity offered to him through the granting of the loan since it is his only job that allows him to support himself.
