Humberto's story

Señor Humberto has been working in public transportation in Acuña for the last 21 years. Currently Humberto does not drive a vehicle himself, as he has two drivers who work for him, and who pay him a rental fee. He comments that at the moment one of these vehicles needs maintenance, and this is why he wants a loan to purchase the parts he needs, and to pay the mechanic who will do the work.

Señor Humberto is an older person, but this does not prevent him for working. He serves as a supervisor for the urban transport service, making sure that the vehicles go to the right destination and at a reasonable speed.

In addition to his income from the rental of the vehicles, he receives a monthly pension to cover his costs.

Señor Humberto is the man in the white T-shirt.
