Yuri Rolando
Yuri Rolando, 40, has a business providing cycle rickshaw (3-wheeled bike with attached cart) transportation services. He has had this business for more than 7 years. He started out in this line of work with severance pay that he had received, so in this way he was able to start the business. He works with a lot of effort and dedication; each day he gets up early because there is a lot of competition and he is always concerned about providing good service to every one of his customers. The reason for this loan is so that he can buy seats, pedals, chains, canopies, and other improvements that he wants to make. He dreams of buying another cycle rickshaw, and in this way expanding his business.
