Mauro's story

Mauro, who is 52-years old, is married and has three daughters. They all live together in their own home. Mauro's job is working as a mechanic. He has a workshop where he repairs motorcycles and moto-taxis. He offers solutions to a variety of technical problems. The workshop is located in his home. Occasionally, an assistant works alongside him. Mauro has been doing this work for 30 years, and he is happy that he is doing something he likes to generate an income for his family and his three daughters' educations. At first, it was problematic for Mauro; he wasn't used to working with metal and grease. But with time, he got used to his work, and in his many years, he has gained a lot of experience. For now, what Mauro most wants to is to keep working with better results, and for that he needs to replace some of the tools he uses on a daily basis. At this time, Mauro is requesting S/. 1000 (USD $375). He is grateful to all the people who are offering him this loan so that he can meet his goals. With the requested sum, Mauro will purchase screwdrivers, keys and other tools to add to his workshop.
