A loan of $800 helped to purchase tubes and canvas to make a mobile canopy.

Moisés Alexander's story

Moisés is a young entrepreneur with a strong desire to succeed. He is 22 years old, and married with two children. He has a ninth grade education and has had an auto body and painting workshop for nine years. There, he provides work to his father and a brother. Currently, he has a good clientele because his work is of very good quality and they work all day to ensure that deliveries are very fast. In order to purchase materials for his work, he travels to the city, a 20 minute bus ride. There, he makes purchases at a hardware store since they give him a good price and offer good quality materials.

The loan he is requesting is to purchase tubes and canvas to make a mobile canopy, which will serve as a gallery so that he can work more comfortably. The canopy will serve as protection from the sun, and he a will be able to move it anywhere to do his work during the hours when the sun is hottest. So, his income will be higher and he will be able to provide a better life to his family. He is planning to save and work very hard to purchase land and build his house since they live in a rented home.
