A loan helped to pay for taxi repair and maintenance.


Jose Lorenzo's story

Jose Lorenzo is single and 32 years old, and he lives in the house of a relative in Jaramijo canton, a beautiful place whose inhabitants are very humble and diligent people that work in the seafood industry.

Jose is a very honest man who strives daily to get ahead with his family. That is why he decided to start his business eight years ago. He has a taxi and goes all over the city, but at the beginning of the pandemic his business was affected because no one could work. Now, it is reviving with all the biosecurity measures.

This loan is for the repair and maintenance of Jose’s taxi. His dream is for everything to return to normal.
