A loan of $725 helped buy replacement parts and do maintenance on his vehicle.


Edwing Antonio's story

Edwin C., 36, lives in the Villa Reconciliación neighborhood in the capital city of Managua. He and his wife have three children; they are 6, 17, and 19 years old. The children go to school. His wife works as an elementary school teacher to help the household.

Edwin has a taxi. He uses it every day to travel the streets of Managua in order to support his family, even though he gets very tired from his travels looking for customers. He has worked as a driver for four years. Before that he worked for a private business. But, they cut back on personal, and with the liquidation he bought the taxi.

He will use the loan to invest in replacement parts and maintenance for his taxi to be able to give his customers good service.

He is grateful to the institution for the support of loans and terms because he will be able to make the improvements.

His goal is to be able to have another taxi to get better profits.
