Jorge Armando
Jorge, 57, is married and has two children; he lives with his wife and one of his children in a suburban neighborhood in San Pedro Sula.

He’s been providing taxi services for the last 15 years. He transports people from their homes to work every day. He’s always been in this line of work and has done very well. He’s taken out five loans to support his activity. He’s now asking for another loan for 20,000 Lempiras to repair the steering system and to buy tires for the taxi to provide better, safer customer service. With profits obtained he plans to buy another car to improve his family income. He thanks ODEF and now KIVA too for the financial support they provide him.
