Irma's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped purchase a mobile radio system for directing transportation for women. This will allow her to work while caring for her children, and provide added income to support her family.

Irma's story

Irma is the mother of two small children. She recently began to live with their father, but then he had to move to another city to work, in order to help support the children. At present, they live in her father's house, where her husband does soldering and electrical work. But he doesn't have all the machinery necessary to do his work.

For that reason, Irma decided to attend a training center to learn to dispatch transport vehicles by radio. For that reason, she is requesting a loan to purchase a mobile communication system so that she can offer her services via mobile radio in transporting exclusively women passengers. The center has trained her, and now, she hopes to increase her income and offer a better quality of life to her family.

Irma is a very responsible and hard-working person who has worked in various places. She also learned sewing and, eventually, was able to perform this work, helping maintain her family. Irma hopes that with the acquisition of a mobile phone system, she will be able to work tranquilly while caring for her children and have more time with them, since quite often, there is no one to provide child care.
