A loan of $900 helped to buy spare parts for bicycles.


Ilma Amparo's story

Ilma is 45 years old and in a civil marriage. They have a daughter, 18-year-old Tatiana, who studies in the area's school.

Together with her husband, every morning they repair bicycles. This small business allows them to be together while generating income to cover their basic household expenses at the same time.

Ilma is a hard working person. She needs money in order to buy spare parts and integrate them into the bicycle maintenance service. This will prevent her clients from going to another store to buy when she lacks these things. She would gain larger profits and be able to continue fulfilling her family's needs.
