A loan of $2,075 helped to buy a drill press and a hydraulic press.


Iván David's story

Iván, who is 33 years old, is the father of two children, ages 5 and 7. He lives in free union with his partner. He has worked for a number of years as an auto mechanic, a trade that he learned empirically and that has allowed him to set up his own shop, where he works with his brother every day from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. In addition, he makes service calls to do temporary repairs; in this way he generates additional income to cover the basic necessities of his family. Now he is applying for the support of a loan in order to buy a drill press and a hydraulic press, with which he will be able to improve working conditions and offer a better and more adept service to his customers, and as a result increasing his family income. Iván has as a priority achieving his dream of expanding his business to be able to generate new employment opportunities and seeing that his establishment endures so that he can leave a good legacy to his children, which will allow them to live comfortably and without any type of economic need.
