A loan of $650 helped to buy transistors, diodes, and coils in order to continue fixing electronic equipment.


Jesús's story

Jesus works Mondays through Saturdays at his business of providing maintenance and repair to different electronic devices. On the week-ends he plays in a local band. He works with his friends as musicians in this group at least two times a month. It is his family’s support, and he has a wife and three children.

Jesus has his business at a certain location in order to be in a busier place and to have more customers. He has his business in a central location. He fixes things from old time televisions to LCD screens, simple radios, and even the most modern components.

He goes and stocks his merchandise outside of the city, where he finds what he needs to make the repairs he has to make. People look for him because he is very effective and very fast with his jobs.

With help from our institution he will buy other tools like transistors, diodes, and coils, which he needs in order to continue giving his customers excellent service. His customers have great confidence in him when they bring him a device to repair.
