Yader, 44, lives with his 13 year old son, and he has a taxi. He started as a driver for another taxi since he didn’t have enough capital, but he has always been looking for a way to increase his income. He works every day from 6 in the morning to 10 at night but he can’t work later because of the problems. He wants to continue with his business so that he can keep supporting his family. That is why he needs financing so that he can buy tires, replacement parts, and for some repairs that he needs to make on his car. In the future he would like to have another taxi and continue offering good service.
