Rafael works mornings for a public institution and at night he drives his own taxi. He is married and his wife weaves blankets, an activity in which she does well. Together they used their savings to buy the vehicle. However, it is starting to have some mechanical problems and this is why he’s asking for a loan: to make repairs and to buy new tires for the vehicle.

He is a responsible, hard working person who very much wants to get ahead in life. He puts in a lot of effort to both activities knowing that effort will be rewarded. He is very grateful to the institution for the help provided.
