Jorge Nelson's story

Jorge is 43 years old, married, and has a 23 year old son. He had been working as a mechanic, repairing cars and motorcycles for 15 years, helping his father. After 10 years his father passed away and he took charge of the shop, where he specialized in the sale of motorcycle parts because this required less capital. Since then he has worked tirelessly to get his family ahead and he was able to buy a house with his earnings.

Jorge is a happy, active, and friendly man, well known in the area because of the good quality service he provides. This motivates him to improve each day. He needs a loan to buy supplies in quantity (spark plugs, bulbs, mirrors, lubricants, additives, and other things), which will allow him to increase his inventory to meet his customer demand and continue providing quality service. This way he can keep his customers loyal. This will be reflected as increased income with which he will be able to move toward achieving his dream of strengthening and growing his business in order to generate more employment opportunities and be able to offer his family better wellbeing and quality of life.
