Clemente's story

Clemente is 43-years-old and married to Isabel. They have three children who live with them in their home. Clemente is a mechanic with an auto repair shop and where he works on everything from small cars to large trucks. His business has provided for his family and allowed Clemente to save the money for a small grocery store that his wife runs. She sells cold drinks, such as soda, and some of the highest-selling household items. The store is in the first floor of the family's home and Clemente and Isabel have managed to fix it up a little. Clemente wants to keep striving to improve the repair shop as it helps the family finances and supports his work as a mechanic. This is the second time Clemente has requested a loan and he's very pleased to have the lender's trust. He hopes to receive 3,000 new soles to purchase spare parts for his shop, as well as tools such as screwdrivers, hammers, and others.
