Nancy's story

Nancy is 31 years old, married and has two small children. She is an elementary school teacher in the rural area of Tiraque, Escuela Fé and Alegría, about 65 kilometers from the city. Her husband drives a taxi, which is the family's main source of income, transporting passengers in the city only during the afternoons. The vehicle runs on gas, which is very expensive, so they want to make the car more efficient and economical. They live in her parents' home in Cochabamba, Bolivia, where they want to grow their finances so they can have a home of their own and improve their quality of life. Nancy is requesting the loan to purchase a new gas tank for the taxi as well as a new motor because the old one was stolen.
