Jorge Luis Celso's story

Jorge Luis is 28, married, and lives with his wife and four-month son in his parents' house, which is located in the district of Ciudad Eten, twenty-minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

For two years he has transported cargo and passengers in his moto taxi (a three-wheeled motorized vehicle). He works all day on his vehicle and with the money he gains he supports the costs of his household.

The continual use of the vehicle has caused some damage to the engine. For this reason, Jorge Luis finds him himself asking our institution for his first loan of 1200 soles to invest in the repair and maintenance of his means of work.

His greatest desire is to buy a piece of land and to build a house there so he can live together with his family. His neighbors consider him a happy and responsible young man who works arduously every day to support his family.
