A loan of $850 helped to buy spare parts for washing machines.


Gabriel Alberto's story

Gabriel is 57 years old and owns a shop that does repairs for washing machines and freezers, as well as sells spare parts. He has had this business for 20 years, and it has been his single source of income by which he provides for his wife and three children.

Gabriel's biggest desire is to be able to buy his own house and improve his family's quality of life. He hopes that his sales increase and that he will soon be able to save enough money to pay the deposit for a house. To do this, he is requesting a loan that he will invest to buy spare parts, with which he will be able to finish some repairs and increase his output.

Gabriels considers that his children's education is fundamental and the best gift he is able to offer them. He sacrifices whatever is necessary in order to give his children a good education.
