A loan of $1,200 helped to stock his store.

Guimer's story

Guimer V. A. is 23 years old, is in a live-in relationship, and has one daughter. From a very young age he began working as a mason. Now he drives a moto-taxi as part of the CARRASCO union and has been an active member for two years. This service is profitable because many people use it. It’s fast and efficient.

The union has shifts and stops in different parts of town for each member. They are located in places where people gather for said service. His wife runs a small neighborhood store so that she can help with the family expenses that [Guimer’s] current salary will not cover. They want to give a better life to their daughter in the future.

This will be his first loan through our institution, which he will use to buy merchandise to stock the store and have a better assortment and be able to provide a better quality of products to his customers. This will allow him to increase his income and quality of life.

Guimer came to request a loan after his fellow members from the union told him about the way our institution works.
