On top of her regular job as a teacher in a school, Jannette Jamilet also works as a taxi driver. As her main wage is not enough to pay for her family’s expenses, Jannette started this activity because she needed a second income. One of her main challenges is the cost of petrol for the taxi, because gas price varies a lot. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy tires and headlights, and to pay for the car’s upkeep.
Jannette Jamilet se dedica a brindar el servicio de taxi. Además tiene su trabajo que es docente en una escuela. El negocio Jannette inicio por la necesidad de obtener un ingreso, pues actualmente con el salario que obtiene no es suficiente para cubrir los gastos de su hogar. Uno de sus mayores desafíos es el gasto de la gasolina del taxi, ya que el precio de la gasolina es muy inestable. El financiamiento que solicita es para la compra de llantas, focos y mantenimiento al vehículo.
