Omar Diego's story

Omar is 35 years old and has had to struggle through life to get his family ahead. He began working as a mechanic when he was 14 years old so he decided to attend a trade school to perfect the art. Later he worked at different mechanic shops in the city of Rionegro, Colombia and then decided to start his own business in order to improve his financial situation.

His workshop is his only source of income for his home. His greatest dream is to offer his wife and 8 month old son a dignified life and he needs this loan in order to make that happen. He will use the money to buy steering and general spare parts needed to develop his business.
