A loan of $700 helped perform renovations to his daughter's room.

Ruben's story

Sr. Rubén Q. R. is 30 years old and lives in his parents’ house in the settlement of Los Fica located along Huacachina Road in the city of Ica. His parents have provided two rooms for him and his eight year old daughter, who attends a local school. Rubén has been separated from his partner for the past 2 years, so he is in charge of his daughter’s expenses.

He took out a previous loan with another institution and repaid it on time. Rubén has been working in the transportation sector for 8 years. With his savings, he was able to purchase a secondhand motorcycle taxi. This enabled him to generate a better income so that he could buy a bedroom set and perform renovations to his daughter’s room.

Rubén is a determined, hardworking man. He continues to press forward for the sake of his daughter, who is his reason for living. He has good references and his neighbors say he is a good worker.
