A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase tools and motorcycle replacement parts.

Victor Manuel's story

Victor is a very hardworking young man who's had a great passion for motorcycles since he was a boy, to the extent that he began working as a mechanic assistant at an early age. He learned many skills there and has perfected them by doing jobs for friends on his own. The aforementioned friends referred him to other people and that's how his customer base started growing until he made the decision to set up his own shop providing repair service and selling replacement parts. Thanks to this business he's able to financially help his family. Within 3 years he plans on having a shop with 5 employees providing repair services and 2 selling replacement parts from a warehouse. He'll invest the loan in the purchase of replacement parts and tools for his warehouse since on several occasions he's had to borrow tools from other shops to finish a repair job. This is why the loan will be a huge help for Victor's plans to move forward.
