A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase supplies for giving tattoos, such as tattoo guns, inks, and pictures of his best tattoos; and to paint the shop and make it more appealing.


Diego Alejandro's story

Alejandro, at 18 years of age, has 4 years’ experience in the tattoo world, as he has been passionate about this body art since he was very young.

He has a formal business, and he knows that in order to move forward he must improve its appearance and have enough tools for a good service, such as tattoo guns, inks, catalogs, and pictures in his shop.

He wants to request a loan in order to purchase a tattoo gun, colored inks, and pictures of his most representative tattoos; and to make changes to the shop, such as painting it, The loan will be of great importance, as he is just becoming known in the marketplace.

He is just an 18-year-old young man who only wants to make progress and earn his living simply and honorably. And, he wants to have the capital in order to study and help his parents, who have spent so much time raising and educating him.
