A loan of $500 helped to buy spare parts to repair household appliances.


Emerson Alexis's story

Emerson is a responsible young man who takes care of his family's wellbeing. He is 29 years old and lives with his wife and their two small children, who are his biggest inspiration, helping him to move forward and seek a better life. Emerson works in his own electronics workshop, in which he makes a living repairing televisions, fans, radios, remote controls and other equipment. He has owned this business for over two years already, in the center of the department where he lives. He has many customers, who favor him because he is reliable, friendly and honest. Emerson is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy various spare parts, such as integrated circuits, chips, cables, and other items to repair a greater number of household appliances. Emerson's greatest wish is to grow his business even further, in order to increase his earnings.
