A loan of $1,000 helped the cost of converting her husband's public transport vehicle from running on gasoline to natural gas.

Carmen's story

Carmen sells groceries. She has two children. Her husband is a minibus driver. They live in their own house located in the Cotahuma area of the city of La Paz.

The loan she is applying for will be used for the purchase of GNV (vehicular natural gas) equipment for converting her husband’s minibus from running on gasoline to gas in order to reduce the cost of operating the vehicle, since natural gas is cheaper than gasoline. In this way they will be able to increase their income.
