Jorge Eliecer
Jorge, 37, lives in the municipality of Soledad where he has had an auto shop since 2003, even though his experience dates back to the year 1998 when his father was an automotive mechanic.

Jorge observed that this business was very profitable and for that reason today he is running his own shop where he offers general mechanical services, brass works and automotive painting. In his establishment, which is located at his home, he principally attends to his neighbors in the area and vehicle owners who circle around there.

He is currently applying for a Kiva loan, the first financing that Mario Santo Domingo Foundation is providing, with which he will buy tools and supplies such as paint and enamel, with which he will improve the quality of his work in the workshop and this is what will make his investment successful.
