A loan of $1,575 helped to buy spare auto parts.

Marcos Angel's story

Marcos is a professional driver who has been offfering transportation service to customers for many years. His vehicle broken down and the cost of repair is very high so he decided to rent a vehicle to work as a taxi driver in a legal co-op. He works Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., covering routes throughout the entire city.

Marcos' greatest problem is the competition from pirate taxis who offer lower rates since they are not legally associated to the co-op. The work he does is tiresome since he is driving all day long and the hot sun does not help. But he is thankful that he has not had major problems with delinquency.

The loan he is requesting is to buy spare auto parts because he needs to work in other transportation areas on the weekends. His goal is to buy his own taxi and not have to rent one,.
