Arturo is 29 years old and married. With the goal of having his own source of income, he began working four years ago in the commercialization and distribution of shellfish with exporter companies. Thanks to his profits and the loans awarded previously with PANA PANA, he was able to purchase a taxi. He is applying for a loan to perform maintenance on his taxi including tires, lubricants, oil, and brake fluid. His dream is to grow his business and offer wholesale shellfish to other companies in his country.
