Carlos Eduardo
25-year-old Carlos drives a motor rickshaw (a fast and efficient means of transport for going places where a car cannot). He lives in a peri-urban zone called “Perimetral” that is surrounded by a marsh.

He started 5 years ago making runs with a motor rickshaw (a speedy mode of transport), due to the necessity and because people in his area needed a fast means of transport that would get to the places that public transport would not. Since then, he has been working to support his 5-year-old daughter. He works from 8am to 9pm every day.

With the loan, he wants to change the motorcycle, buying a new one in order to work faster. In the future he wants to have a house, since he now lives in his uncle’s house and he needs to give his daughter a better life.
