A loan of $1,500 helps to buy a motorbike for his child to easily go to school.


Elias's story

Elias is a local villager in the Oecusse province. He is 34 years old and has three children. Only one of them is in school. Elias grows rice as the main source of his family’s income. He has been involved with his business for seven years.

Elias is now requesting this new loan in order to buy a motorbike for his child to easily go to school, which is a bit far from home. On the other hand, he can also use this motorbike to go to the fields. He hopes this loan will be useful for his child and also his family’s living standard.

This will be Elias' fourth loan cycle with VisionFund, and he has managed to pay back his previous loans on time.
