A loan of $900 helped to buy tools for his shop.

Wilmer Patricio's story

Sr. Wilmer lives in Guayaquil. He says that he began working as a mechanic 12 years ago. He chose this line of work because he graduated from a technical school. Wilmer began working after he completed his military service.

He works at his shop with the help of two assistants. His schedule working as a service technician is from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Wilmer says that he was in an accident five years ago, so he has trouble seeing out of his right eye, which causes him a little difficulty in his work. He is married and his wife devotes herself to the household duties. They have two children who attend state schools.

With this loan, Wilmer will buy tools so that he can improve his business. In the future, he would like to have a house for his family and to acquire his own location for his workshop.
