Abner Alfonso's story

Abner, 26, finished high school and is married. His wife does the household chores, and they have a five-year-old son, who is in elementary school. They live with his parents and his younger brother, who is not his dependent. For five years, Abner and his brother have been selling and repairing lights and vehicle electrical systems, and they have seen that the business generates good income for them and their family. He learned the trade from an uncle who did the same work. He also transports building materials in his truck. His business is far from his house, and he and his brother, who helps him at work, take a two-hour bus ride to get there.

He has applied for a loan to achieve his wish to buy a variety of high-quality spare parts to sell to his customers. In the future, Abner hopes to return to his studies and finish college, to grow his business, to offer more auto services, and to hire more employees for the shop. He wishes the best for his son and hopes he studies hard, finishes college, and becomes a great person. Abner hopes to achieve all this through the loan he has applied for and future loans.
