A loan of $600 helped to build a platform.


Juan's story

Juan lives in the city of Itá. He is married with María Gómez and they have a school-aged son.

He says that we worked for a long time as an employee in a family member's mechanic shop. Thanks to his savings and his parents' financial help he was able to buy various tools and open his own shop in his home six years ago. Today, he has customers who are taxi drivers, bread delivery people and members of the public whose vehicles need maintenance, fixing or spare parts changed.

He explains that he needs this loan to build a platform in his shop so that when it rains or is very hot he can give his clients and himself greater comfort and better service as thanks to his good work he is getting new customers daily.
