Roberto Juvenal
Roberto is 43 years old, single, and lives in the city of Ica, which is known for its hot climate and friendly people. Roberto has always been a kind, enthusiastic and hard-working person, who has a great desire to get ahead and support his family. Unfortunately, since he has to spend all his time working to pay his bills, he has not been able to pursue a professional career, though he would have liked to study civil engineering. In his free time, Roberto likes to drive around and take in the beautiful landscapes of his home city and region.

Of his own initiative and through his hard work, Roberto was able to start up a taxi service several years ago. He has his own car, and he starts driving early every morning to look for passengers. He works about 8 hours every day, and can attend up to 40 clients per day. Roberto enjoys his work, and believes that things are going well because he offers a good service and is kind to all he meets.

Roberto is very grateful for this opportunity, and hopes to use the support from this loan to purchase a set of tires and speakers for his taxi. By sprucing up his car, he hopes that he will be able to offer a higher quality service to his customers, and will therefore increase his income. His goal is to buy another car in the future, and to work toward his dream of owning a large taxi business.
