Paola Mayela's story

Paola Mayela is 30 years old; she is married and has two underage children. She has a taxi which she hires out and everyday she goes to work. She bought the taxi 6 years ago and since then it has been in a good state. At present, she wants to invest in the car by performing a general maintenance on it and to buy some spare parts so that there won’t be any problems. Her problems are the same as anyone in the transportation sector, mainly in gas prices which are increasing everyday. Her dream in the short term is to buy another vehicle to bring more income and another job for her family since the vehicle that she already owns is driven by one of her brothers.
