A loan of $925 helped to buy spare parts.


Claudelino's story

Claudelino B., 54 years old, is married with four children. He is a taxi driver. He bought his own car some years ago and since then has been working privately as a taxi service. He has been engaged in this work for more than 20 years.
Claudelino has told us that this type of work requires a lot of sacrifice. In order to obtain a decent wage he has to work at night, particularly in the early morning hours. For this reason, his job can be quite dangerous. In Paraguay, crime on the streets is common and this is something he must confront when he works late at night. However, he is thankful that he is able to earn a decent wage and maintain his family. He feels it is particularly important that children go to school and is thankful that this job has allowed him to do this. Today his children are fully grown and relatively successful. Although, one of his older sons has left the country in search of better work opportunities.

He has asked for a loan to buy spare parts for his taxi. His car requires minor repairs so that he can stay in business. Maintaining his car is important to his livelihood and he has always been very meticulous about caring for it.
