A loan of $850 helped to buy a new motorcycle to use as a taxi.

Rufino's story

41-year old Señor Rufino Fernández T. lives with his partner and has seven children to support and provide with education. Both he and his eldest son work to provide for the family. Rufino has worked as a taxi driver for more than six years in the area of Ivirgarzama with the Carrasco taxi service. His son has worked for about two years as an assistant to a bricklayer.

The company that Rufino works for has taxi ranks and shifts for each of its drivers in different places in Ivirgarzama where people can go to find a taxi. It's a well-paid job as he provides fast and efficient service to his many customers.

This is the first time that Rufino has sought a loan from our institution. He plans to use it to buy a new motorcycle so that his oldest son can join the taxi company and they can improve their family's standard of living.
