Pedro's story

For Pedro, his ACCION USA loan is ‘abrienda la puerta’ (opening the door) to a better future. Pedro has been working as a taxi driver in New York City for over 10 years. Previously contracted by a car service, his drive and ambition lead him to start his own car service. He is currently in the process of building his clientele and expanding his fleet of taxis. As he explains, the more cars that you can put out the more revenue you can bring. For Pedro, bringing in a steady revenue is crucial because as a proud husband, father and grandfather he wants to be able to provide the best possible quality of life for his family. This is Pedro’s sixth loan with ACCION USA. With this loan, he will be renewing his insurance and continuing repayment of his previous car purchase. He is excited to grow his business and is enjoying the experiences of a taxi driver in New York.
