A loan of $500 helped buy a line of moto-taxi.

David's story

David lives in the Torno area, about 39 km from the city of Santa Cruz, en the 6 of May neighborhood in a house that he rents. He is single and works as a moto-taxi driver (transportation service for urban passengers). The loan will be used to buy a line of transport, that is, a membership in the association (Linea los Amigos). He has worked at this activity for a year. Before this, he worked in agriculture with his parents in the Belen area about 30 miles away from the community of Torno. He feels grateful to the institution for providing financial support to continue growing his business so to eventually be able to form a stable home and be economically solid so that his descendents do not experience the economic need that he suffered in the country. The agrarian life is very hard with little recognition.
