Dolores V. is a 51-year-old mother of six. Her husband drives a "tricycle" -- a motorcycle with a sidecar that's used as a taxi to transport people and goods -- and many of his passengers are students in their community. For extra income, Dolores and her husband also raise chickens. Dolores plans to put the money from this loan towards the purchase of a new sidecar for her husband's tricycle. In the future, she wants to be able to buy another tricycle, perhaps for one of her children to use. Dolores hopes to earn enough income to be able to send all of her children to college.
