Carlos
Carlos is 25 years old, single and has no children. He lives on his own in his own house. Carlos makes a living carrying cargo and passengers in and around the city. Carlos has his own mototaxi, which he was able to buy as a result of savings he made from other work. Although his vehicle is not new, it has allowed Carlos to get out of financial difficulties. Every day Carlos works on the city streets looking for passengers to transport from A to B quietly, peacefully and safely. As a result of this service, Carlos' customers always say goodbye with a grand gesture and grateful thanks. Carlos has been doing this work for two years and, in this short time, has dealt with all types of situations. Carlos is grateful for his work as he has the advantage of being able to go wherever he wants and he can decide his own timetable. Carlos would like to continue working and to buy another vehicle in order to give somebody else who needs to improve their financial situation the opportunity to work. On this occasion Carlos is applying for 1500 Nuevo Soles and is grateful to those financing the loan and giving him the necessary support to work toward his goals. Carlos will use this loan to buy three tyres as the current ones have become damaged by the bad state of the roads and have become deteriorated over time. He will also upholster the vehicle and pay his mechanic.
