Ramiro De Jesus's story

Ramiro is in a relationship and lives with his partner and their four children. He is responsible for all of the household expenses. He has a mechanic’s shop, which is a trade he learned from his family. He works in the shop from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ramiro says that he has worked hard since he opened his business to keep it busy.

Ramiro is requesting this loan to buy brake pads, mirrors, oil, screwdrivers, wrenches and sensors, etc. He says that with this loan he will be able to better stock his inventory and give better service to his customers. Ramiro hopes to attract new customers, generate more income and pay off some debt. He says that his dream is to properly equip his shop so that he can offer a better service to his customers and improve his family’s standard of living.
