Antoliano has been working as a taxi driver for 23 years. He obtained his place on a taxi stand in 1962 and he still works from the same spot. He was born in the city of Yaguarón but has lived in the city of Asunción since he was a young boy. He gives us a summary of the years he has worked the streets of Gran Asunción. He says "It is a job that has its risks. Often you work night shifts or carry passengers who you do not know, who might look dangerous. However, the job also makes good money as there are other times when nothing bad happens".

Antoliano's wife is a dressmaker. She has her own customer base and, together with the money his children make, Mr P. has a decent life which makes him pleased. He is requesting this loan so that he can repair his vehicle, have some maintenance work done on it, and continue making profits for his family.
