A loan of $575 helped to pay for spare parts for her taxi.


Gladys's story

Sra. Gladys lives in a very pretty place, where people harvest berries. She is married to Sr. Román with whom she has four children, who are all still dependents.

She is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of spare parts for her taxi, thereby keeping it in good condition so that the passengers feel safe. She has been doing this job for four years and notes that it is going well and that it has generated a good income for her family.

The person who encouraged her in this work was her husband who drives the taxi, thereby earning a better income in order to get ahead.

What she wants most is for this work to increase their income so they can support their children as they grow and also buy material to build a place to park their taxi.
