A loan of $675 helped purchase motorcycle taxi.

Jaime's story

Mr. Jaime C. C. is a native of Pilcopata, located in the Kosñipata district of the Paucartambo province, department of Cusco. His town is near the entrance to the Manu National Park, located some 8 hours from the city of Cusco.

Our client is a 28-year-old man who has a live-in partner and two children, ages 5 and 1. His main business activity is agriculture. He grows rice, fruit, cassava and coca. Mr. C. needs a loan that he wishes to invest in purchasing a motorcycle taxi—a motorcycle equipped with a passenger wagon. This taxi will be very convenient in Pilcopata’s climate because we are located in the Cusco jungle, where we enjoy excellent weather. He needs this loan so that he can provide transportation services in the nearby villages.

The client is very grateful and values the loan that he has been given, committing himself to pay it back in the established time frame.
