A loan of $1,225 helped to buy tools and spare parts for his workshop.

Silvino's story

Silvino is 22 years old. He is living with his partner. He has been a mechanic since he was 14 years old. He began first as a secretary to a neighbor, and later opened a workshop with his brother, and laboring there he made a bit of income and at the request of many customers he decided to rent a facility where he opened a small workshop that has gotten stronger through the loyalty and preference of his clients. Now he has a well established workshop and even spare parts for sale that generates even more income so that he can improve his quality of life and help his parents.

The loan that he is seeking will be used to invest in the purchase of tools and spare parts so that he can use them in his workshop, and thus continuing giving his customers good service.
