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

A loan helped to pay for maintenance for his car, a tyre change, and other repairs. This will allow him to deliver his customers a more comfortable and safe service.

Raul Alfredo's story

Today Raúl lives with his wife, his daughter and granddaughter. He is an older, retired adult, who is currently making a living offering transport services. His customers are families, friends and neighbours. His journeys are inside and outside of the city.

In 2015, Raúl had to stop working due to health complications. Through having free time, and the due to the necessity to earn a financial income, he decided to take advantage of the fact his neighbours always asked him to transport them around, thereby starting a business that helps him to earn income and at the same time doesn't cause any issues for his health. His work schedule and roster are also flexible.

He is requesting a loan to pay for maintenance of his vehicle, for new tyres and for other repairs. This will allow him to provide his customers with a more comfortable and safe service.

His dream is to be able to grow his business and to have better financial conditions for the wellbeing of his family, and to create an inheritance to leave for one of his children.
