Simeón Dadeo's story

Simeón is in the transport business. He drives a mototaxi and rents out a car, which his daughter’s husband drives. Simeón has had the mototaxi for more than five years and the car for less than one year. He has been in business for more than five years, beginning when he came up with the idea to rent out a car.

He is married and his wife is a seasonal farm worker, providing additional income to cover family costs. Simeón has four children, two of them are now independent and the others are in high school.

He lives in his own house and has a garage where he keeps his cars. He has a weekly income of about 500 soles. His dream for the future is to buy another car to rent out to increase his income.

This money will be invested in the maintenance of his mototaxi and car. Among other things, he wants to give them a tune up and electric inspection so that they will continue to work without any problems. This will allow him to give the best service to his clients.

Simeón is very grateful for the confidence you have in him.
