but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to make mechanical repairs on his work tool (a taxi).

Joseph Valentin's story

Joseph Valentin is 37 years old. He is married and has 5 children. He lives with the whole family in the city of Manta, a place on the Ecuadorian coast that is much visited by domestic and international tourists. It has a diversity of flora and fauna, with its beautiful beaches and places of historical importance.

Joseph Valentin works very hard every day. He has been a taxi driver for more than 10 years and his wife works as a secretary in a private institution. With the quarantine decreed because of the pandemic, it was difficult to do their jobs. His wife's salary was reduced. With the few savings they had, they were able to survive. The economic crisis was difficult for their household, but thanks to help from their family, they were able to get ahead.

With the money from the loan from the Fundación, he will invest in mechanical repairs for his work tool (a taxi), so that he can continue working and get ahead financially.

Joseph Valentin's dream is to buy himself another car to expand his business, and for his family to be in good health.
