Mayra Maricela's story

Mayra is a 41-year-old woman who has a great desire to boost her motorcycle taxi business over the next few years (she appears in the photo with her husband).

Mayra's business story began when she used to help her dad in his business renting out showers on the beach and her husband worked buying and selling fish.

Mayra's husband drives the motorcycle taxi between 7.00am and 1.00pm and from 2.00pm to 6.00pm, depending on how busy the area is with tourists. The difficulty they face is crime. Mayra has a common-law marriage and her husband manages the motorcycle taxi. The couple do not have any children. Mayra's biggest dream for the future is to acquire another motorcycle taxi and improve her quality of life. She would like this loan for the motorcycle taxi service.
