A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a new work tool (motorcycle).

Agapo's story

Mr Agapo Rodríguez Condori studied up to his fourth year of elementary school. He is single and doesn't have any children. He is mother and father to his three siblings who are still studying and help him with the household chores. The children have been without their father since they were very young and then 6 months ago their mother died. Since then, he has been in charge of educating and taking care of them. He has been working as a motorcycle taxi driver in Ivirgarzama for more than 3 years and is affiliated with the motorcycle taxi drivers' union “10 de Noviembre”. He has been an active member of the union for more than 3 years. The service he provides is profitable since a lot of people request this service for its ease, speed and efficiency. The union has stops and shifts for each member at different points in the town of Ivirgarzama where people turn up to request the service.

This is the first time that this client has obtained a loan from our institution. He will use it to buy a new motorcycle since the one he has now has already reached the end of its life cycle and in this way he will be able to provide a better service to his customers, improve his income and thereby improve his quality of life.

We must point out that Mr Agapo Rodríguez Condori turned up in person to request his loan since his work colleagues told him about the good credit conditions with which our institution works.
