A loan of $500 helped to pay a mechanic for installing shocks and an oil change.


Javier Omar's story

Javier lives with his wife and 3 children who are 6, 12 and 15 years of age. He works as school minibus driver, picking up school students from 6:00 am until 12:00 noon, Mondays to Fridays. He has been doing this work for several years and the students' parents have monthly contracts with him.

He will use the loan for the maintenance of his minibus, paying the mechanic for installing shocks, making an oil change and a number plate change. This loan will be very useful to Javier as with the funds he can count on a form of transport that has been fully reviewed by a mechanic and he will have his papers in order for the change of number plates.

Javier's dream is to have several minibuses in order to make more income so that his family can have a better life and a better quality of life.
