A loan of $2,650 helped purchase news axles and perform autobody maintenance.


José María's story

José is 53 years old, a father of 3 children and lives in a common-law marriage. Throughout his career, he has worked in transportation. He started out as an assistant on a bus, and little by little he learned to drive. Later, he worked as a driver for various people and in some of the mines in the region. Currently, he transports students and other people, which has allowed him to generate the necessary income to afford his basic household necessities.

The client is a hardworking, noble and humble man who fights tirelessly to give his family the best and because of this, he has overcome many inconveniences, especially with his car since the roads are in poor conditions and have greatly deteriorated his vehicle. This has caused him to spend a lot of money repairing his car, destabilizing his household finances. Nevertheless, he has found ways to continue with his work.

The loan he is seeking will be invested in the purchase of new axles and to perform autobody maintenance which will raise the car to avoid the constant damage. It will also make the car look better and be safer for his passengers which will be demonstrated by his increased clientele. This will lead to increased income to continue to afford his household expenses and advance everyday so that in the near future, he will be able to realize his dream of owning another car with which he can increase his family's assets and provide them with a better quality of life.
