A loan of $1,000 helped to convert his taxi to run on natural gas instead of gasoline.


Marcelo Dario's story

Marcelo is a long-standing client of our institution who has worked through two loan cycles, demonstrating punctuality and responsibility in making his payments. Marcelo is a taxi driver who owns a vehicle that runs on gasoline. He is requesting this loan to convert his vehicle to run on natural gas. This conversion would increase his profits and reduce his expenses. Marcelo gets up very early to work in his vehicle since he has young children. He leaves the children the care of his wife. Marcelo's wish is to be able to buy his own home so that he can offer his family a more comfortable life. He is a very hard-working person and is grateful to the institution for the support they have offered him. In the photo, Marcelo is accompanied by his wife.
