A loan of $600 helped to buy replacement parts for motor vehicles, including tires, brakes, and spark plugs.

Ray's story

Ray, 43 years old, is married to Delia who is a housewife and mother of their 4 children. They live together in their own house. Ray sells replacement parts for motorbikes and moto-taxis. He offers services such as vulcanizing, oil changes, lubrication, motor repair, and other functions.

To carry out this activity, Ray uses his own shop, which he constructed in his house. Here he sells all the replacement parts his customers require, such as pistons, spark plugs, piston rings, tires, and brakes, among others. In addition, he attends with care to all the customers who come by to request his services. That's how he has survived in this business for 7 years. He works with the help of his family.

Ray considers his business sufficiently profitable due to the demand that exists for his products, thanks to the constant growth of the vehicular sector in his city. Fortunately, thanks to the good results the business obtains, his economic income has increased and his path to progress continues. That's why he wants to complement it with new services in his establishment, and to count on a complete package of vehicular services.

On this occasion, Ray is requesting 1,500 sols, and he feels content in the knowledge that he has the financial help that will permit him to continue the progress of his business. With the requested funds, he will purchase replacement parts for vehicles, including axles, tires, spark plugs, and brakes, which are the products most requested in his shop.
