Santiago's story

Santiago is a 39-year-old married man with two children. He provides motorcycle transport services as a business. Income from it serves as the family's sustenance for meals and school expenses. He hopes to give the best education for his children.

This time, he has insufficient funds to maintain his motorcycle so he is asking for a loan of P9,000 to buy tires, gasoline, and crude oil for the motorcycle.

Someday, Santiago hopes to keep ensuring safe travel for all his passengers. This way, it will also help increase his income for the overall welfare of the family.
