Napoleón's story

Napoleón is 66-years old and an example of the spirit and perseverance that characterize the Colombian people. Napoleón has been through big experiences in his life that have allowed him to grow and to learn about life.
Napoleón's family is the most important thing to him. They are the driving force that propels him forward in search of new business opportunities to guarantee them financial stability and better life conditions.
Before starting his business, Napoleón worked driving a tractor-trailer, an activity that gave him the opportunity to learn about mechanics and iron-works. He took advantage of this additional knowledge to become a micro-entrepreneur and open up his business.

Napoleón currently offers mechanic, iron-works and haulage services.
He is requesting a loan, which will be used to pay for insurance and repairs to his vehicle. He has had to stop his haulage services due to a lack of resources to make the above-mentioned payments.
