This loan will help Elbis purchase car insurance for his taxi.

Elbis moved to New York City from the Dominican Republic ten years ago. Upon arriving in the U.S., Elbis needed a job quickly but didn’t know any English. He began working as a taxi driver, earning enough to support his new life, while giving him the time to study a second language. He learned the streets of NYC quickly and found he greatly enjoyed his job. Years later, Elbis continues to drive throughout NYC, working for a taxi dispatch company. He recently saved enough money to purchase his own vehicle; however, he now needs a loan to buy car insurance.

He hopes one day to purchase several vehicles and hire employees in order to begin his own taxi company.
