Juan Emilio's story

Juan Emilio, 29, is in a common-law marriage, and from this relationship he has a 4 year-old child. His wife works in a taxi center, and the family lives in Manta, a prosperous city that receives many tourists due to its enchanting beaches. This city has been substantially affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Juan Emilio is a youth who enjoys working and getting ahead with his family. This is why he has had a taxi for 8 years, where he provides transportation services inside and out of the city. He also sells men's shoes through a catalog. He works in his taxi every day for more than 10 hours a day. During the first 2 months of the quarantine, he was not able to work in his taxi because he could not circulate, but now he has reactivated the business, taking all of the precautions and following the safety protocol.

Juan Emilio will use this loan to maintain his taxi. He expects to remain healthy and hopes to get ahead with his family.
