Maryory Juana's story

Maryory is 40 years old. She provides a service driving children to school. She lives with her two children in an urban area called Orquídeas (Orchids). The area is so called because when it was discovered they found many flowers there and currently there is an park of orchids there.

Maryory started providing her transport services when she observed that where she lives there are many children who don't have transportation to take them to school. The other motive that she had to continue with her work is that she is a single mother and has two children who are in school. She picks children up at 7.20 in the morning and takes them to school. At 12.05 she collects them and takes them home. She receives $30 a month for each child.

To provide her two children with a better life she would like to improve her house, using her loan to buy cement, sand and blocks in order to remodel it. In the future she would like to buy a bigger vehicle to carry more children.
