Jannette Jamilet
On top of her regular job as a teacher in a school, Jannette Jamilet also works as a taxi driver. As her main wage is not enough to pay for her family’s expenses, Jannette started this activity because she needed a second income. One of her main challenges is the cost of petrol for the taxi, because gas price varies a lot. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy tires and headlights, and to pay for the car’s upkeep.
