A loan of $900 helped to purchase a motorcycle.

Santos Willian's story

Santos is 26-years old. He is single and lives with his father. He is well-known where he lives and works at a hair salon. He has been cutting hair for four years. He learned the trade from the owner of the salon. Santos currently works as a hairdresser to support his father, who, due to a brain hemorrhage, has been paralyzed on one side of his body for three years. Santos uses the salary from his job to purchase medication for his father, with the hope that he will one day get better.

Santos will use the loan to purchase a motorcycle so he can travel from his home to work, purchase his father's medications and have them on time. It will also help him to get to work, which is about 2 km. from his house.

Santos hopes to be able to help his father in whatever he may need once they are out of debt.
