A loan of $1,025 helped to buy mechanic's tools.


Juan Gabriel's story

Juan began working as a mechanic's assistant at an early age, and this work later became his main income source. He decided to increase his knowledge and is studying mechanics at the Simon Bolivar institute. He has paid his tuition and fees by working and is now in his final semester.

He is applying for a loan to buy tools to open his own repair shop in his mother's house. She is offering him space so that he can start his business. Management of the micro bus line N° 14 has offered him the position of official mechanic in light of his excellent work. With this loan, Juan will be able to realize his dream of having his own workshop and generating more income for his household.
