A loan of $425 helped vehicle repair.

Oscar Armando's story

Oscar Armando G. P. has a taxi and provides services. He has been doing this for nearly two years but he only works for people he knows, because he does not have an official taxi license or number and cannot legally solicit freely. He takes people to their jobs in the morning and takes them home in the evenings.

He is currently working with Soptravi and Dirección Ejecutiva de Ingresos (DEI) to obtain an official taxi license plate, because he has found someone who is willing to provide him with a taxi number.

He will use the money from this loan to buy repair parts that he needs to fix up his car so that he can give better services when his taxi becomes licensed. Soptravi and DEI rules state that the vehicle must e in good repair in order to be used as a taxi.
