Jorge Alberto
Jorge Alberto E. M. is 27 years old. He lives in Colón, in the department of La Libertad. He lives with his wife and their three children, a six-year old and twins that are barely a year old. Jorge has a microbus business (the name that small busses are called in his country), in which he brings people to offices and different workplaces. Jorge depends solely on this work to support his family, for which he requests a loan so that he can pay for the necessary repairs for the microbus and also bring it in for a tune-up. In this way, he can offer better service to his customers so that they can travel in a more secure manner. Also, he feels very fortunate to have his own means of transport that allows him to obtain earnings necessary for his family’s sustenance. For this reason, Jorge feels it very important to care for the source of his work.
