A loan of $1,000 helped to buy new tires for his vehicle.


Angel Eduardo's story

Angel, 57, lives in the urban area called Guasmo (named after the plant species Guazuma ulmifolia. Guasmo is a popular, modest class neighborhood which used to be a ranch) in Guayaquil. His wife helps with his transporation service which is school transportation.

He started his business, through friends, some time ago and was able to get contracts with schools. He has an average of 30 students and charges $30 per student. He plans to use the loan to renew his vehicles by buying new tires at a cost of $80 each, for transportation safety purposes. In the future he would like to buy another van so he can add another school to his transportation service.
