A loan of $350 helped to buy inner tubes, patches and valves.


Cruz Celedonio's story

Cruz, 60, is married and has seven children. He lives in Managua and has been repairing car and motorcycle tires for three years in a mechanical workshop he opened. With effort, he bought the tools he needed.

Cruz used to work as a mason, but decided to open his own business and has now a very good reputation among his clients, thanks to the good quality of his services.

Cruz is requesting a loan to buy inner tubes, patches, valves, etc. This way, he will have enough stock to offer his clients a good service. One of his projects is to make some improvements to his establishment and increase his stock of spare parts.
