Alberto Julio's story

Alberto is 33 years old and for more than 12 years has been working in different garages in his area. However, with wages falling and with determination he left and set up his own garage with his leaving package. The garage does body shop work and paints and repairs vehicles. Alberto has become known in the town as a result of the quality of his service which differentiates him from other garages.

His is now applying for a loan that he will invest in a compressor, spray gun and to replace some now deteriorated tools. With the investment he hopes to improve his profitability and generate a higher income to expand his business and make it the best in town.
