Marcelino Federico's story

Marcelino is 47 years old and is a hardworking man with many projections for his business, as he drives a mototaxi (a mode of transportation used by people to transport their merchandise). Every day he travels the streets of El Fortin, charging 25 U.S. cents per person.

He has increased his working capital little by little through extensive and dangerous travel, as El Fortin is a periurban area with dirt roads and steep hills. He works every day from 7:30am to 4:30pm. He has many hopes for his mototaxi, which is why he wants to continue working to provide his family with greater financial stability. For this reason, he wants a loan to buy cement, rods, and blocks to make housing improvements.
