A loan of $575 helped to pay for annual maintenance on his moto-taxi.

Carlos Vidal's story

Carlos is 33 years old and has three children with his partner. His kids are 5, 7 and 8 years old. While his partner runs a grocery store in Urcos, Carlos dedicates himself to driving a moto-taxi (a three-wheeled vehicle). Depending on how well his business is going, Carlos may drive exclusively in Urcos or go to his hometown in Madre de Dios province, about nine hours away, to earn more money. Sometimes he is away for one or two months. Carlos is requesting a loan in order to do annual general maintenance on his moto-taxi. In the future, he hopes to help his partner expand her grocery business.

Carlos is a member of the village bank "Los Amistosas" in Urcos, which is receiving its fifth loan from Asociación Arariwa. Urcos is located about one hour outside of Cusco in the Andean mountains of Peru.
