A loan of $500 helped to purchase various spare parts for the vehicles he purchases and later sells.

Osiel's story

Osiel is partnered and lives with his life partner and three children. He works hard to bring daily sustenance to his household. He has run a business buying and selling vehicles for the past 20 years and inherited his knowledge from his father. His work schedule is from eight in the morning to five in the afternoon.

He will invest in the purchase of various spare parts for the vehicles which he purchases and later sells in better condition and at a better price. He hopes to increase the popularity of his business in the market and to have a better financial situation.

For Osiel, his vision is to have an increase in his sales and income and, in turn, his family's quality of life will be more dignified and he will pay off his debts.
