A loan of $500 helped to buy a set of tires and to service his taxi.

Medardo Eleodoro's story

Medardo, 63, is married and the father of 11 children. He’s been a taxi driver for 11 years. He lives in the city of León. He was 52 years old when he started working as a taxi driver. He used to work as a farmer growing sesame, cotton and peanuts. He inherited the land from his mother but sold part of it to buy the taxi and a house for his children. His wife works selling basic grains at retail.

He’s asking for a loan to service the taxi and to buy a set of tires for it because he needs to keep his vehicle in good working order to offer a good, safe service to transport his customers to their destinations. One of his goals is to buy a more modern vehicle because the one he has is a bit old so that he can make his customers feel more comfortable and safe on their trips.
