A loan of $1,300 helped to buy spare parts to perform maintenance on his vehicle.

Nasalino's story

Nasalino, 40 years old, has lived for 15 years with his partner, Julie, who is 33 years old. The couple has three children ages 12, 5, and 3. Their children are the force that drives them to fight for improvement.

Nasalino works by buying and selling cassava, and has done so for 7 years. He started with the capital he earned from his previous job and began to dabble in this business. Currently, he has an established customer base and he supplies businesses in the neighborhoods of the city. He works every day, starting very early in the morning. He also employs four people, who help him to make daily sales.

He is requesting this loan to buy spare parts and perform routine maintenance on his vehicle, which he uses daily for deliveries. It has experienced some wear and tear so he wants to fix the problem so he can continue providing his customers with their products without delay.
