A loan of $600 helped to buy tools.


Gustavo Adolfo's story

Gustavo is 29 years old and has a high school education. He is married, his wife cares for the home, and they have a one year old son. They live with [Gustavo’s] father and are the only ones depended on him. Gustavo has had a body shop for ten years and it’s located 800 meters from his home. He works from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm and stays later when he has a lot of work to do. He has three employees, which is a great responsibility.

He is asking for this loan to buy tools for the shop because he only has a few and they are in bad shape, therefore the loan will be very helpful for him.

His plans for the future are to have a larger shop where he can have more employees and generate more financial resources. He also wants to buy a house because he lives at his parents’ house and he wants to provide financial security for his family.
