Santiago's story

48 year old Santiago has had a bodywork and painting workshop in his home for 8 years. He has many customers because of the quality of his work and his good prices. He is able to cover some of his household expenses with his profits. He lives in his own home with his partner and their 4 children. Santiago is requesting a loan to buy paint, a compressor, a polisher, and other tools that he needs to continue his business as this is his only source of income. This will enable him to give his family what they need without limits.
