A loan of $525 helped buy a plot of land to park a motor-rickshaw in the future.


Antonio's story

Antonio is 63 years old. He has been married for 35 years to Melesia, and they have 4 children who are already grown and work independently. Antonio has had a motor-rickshaw service in the terminal of the city of Caaguazá for approximately 5 years. He tells us that it is going very well for him since there is always good movement. In addition to this good wave of people, he gives good attention to his customers. He says that he already has a well formed customer base; some people who are going to the city already come directly to him. Antonio wants to have his own line of motor-rickshaw taxis some day in order to offer jobs to many people. He is asking for this loan to buy a plot of land, since he has already obtained a good price. He wants to be able to buy it, so that some day he can drive on it. It is the taxi stop that he dreams of.
