A loan of $800 helped to purchase spare parts for his truck.

Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is a native of the city of Boaco; he is 57 years old. He is married and the father of 4 children, 2 of whom are still under his care. He is a storekeeper, selling and buying quarry stone. He started this business some years ago, working with his dad. After a while, he got a job at a quarry stone company. Little by little, he saved to purchase a truck.

Currently, he has his own business and his truck. His next goal is to repair his truck and go out to make sales in areas throughout the city. He is requesting this loan to buy spare parts for his truck, with the aim of traveling safely around the country selling quarry stones. He feels that the loan will be of help to him, as he doesn't have the money to repair his truck, and in this way, he will be able to cover his business and his truck. His future plan is to purchase another truck.
