Nestor Antonio's story

Upon entering Nestor’s small mechanics shop, one can see the hard work that he does, from repairing lights to completely refinishing auto bodies that are in poor condition. He is a young man, age 32, who in spite of not completing his schooling, did not give up, but looked for a productive way to get ahead. He learned the trade when he worked as an assistant in different repair shops.

Every day he gets up with a lot of enthusiasm and energy, and thanks to the good work that he does, he has earned good customers. In order to keep fighting for his goals, he is requesting a loan. It is for the purchase of materials such as zinc, rods, wrenches, extractors, and purlins, along with other items, and he is relying on the financing.

Because his objective is to prosper in life, he wants to be a great businessman, and his efforts to move forward stand out. Besides working in the repair shop, he makes industrial stoves, which has generated good income for him. One of his future plans is to have a bigger repair shop with more helpers in order to meet his customers’ needs.
