Manuel's story

Manuel is 46 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his family live with his sister in the José Leonardo Ortiz district, the largest district of the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the region of Lambayeque. He makes a living providing transportation services in his taxi. He has been doing this for 10 years. He wants to make some repairs to his car in order to make his daily work more efficient. He will also get documents fro his car such as the license and insurance, which were taken during a recent robbery. For these reasons he is asking for a loan of 2000 new soles. With this investment he will be able to continue giving good service to his customers and generate income which he uses for the support of his family.
