A loan of $1,000 helped to buy rims, tires, patches, and other items.


Oscar De Jesús's story

Oscar, age 65, works in his own business. He started his tire installation shop with the intent of improving his living conditions. His business is located in a small shop located near his home. There he offers his services from 6:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. He takes advantage of the fact that his shop has recognition since a similar business was located there previously.

Oscar learned this line of work thanks to his experience driving these types of vehicles. This forced him to learn about mechanical repairs and how to change tires. The loan he is requesting will be invested in the purchase of wholesale supplies such as rims, tires, patches, and other items. This will allow him to continue his work so that he can provide his services more easily and efficiently. As a result, Oscar will be able to increase his clientele and the income he receives for providing this service.

Oscar wants to continue advancing and strengthening his business so that he can enjoy financial stability. This will give him the opportunity to acquire a house of his own so that he can enjoy the fruits of his hard labor along with his wife.
