A loan of $500 helped to save up to buy a used car.


Americo's story

Americo is a member of the Los Diamantes village bank. He is 36 years old and married, and has two children, Estefani and Traici. He is a taxi driver with a rented taxi. He's driven the taxi for 18 years and it's gone very well because of his commitment to his work. Americo is a hard-working person with a lot of initiative, and he's always looking for ways to improve his situation and offer his children a better future. He needs this loan so he can save up 12000 soles to buy a used car. He dreams of owning a new car. The village bank has been through 10 loan cycles, and Americo says he's very satisfied with the professional development and loan and savings services the group offers.

He's very grateful for the opportunity the groups provides him and is committed to paying off this loan on schedule.
