A loan of $1,000 helped to repair a public transportation vehicle.


Adam's story

Adam is single, 30 years old, and has been a public transportation driver for 6 years. He is currently a tenant, since the only lands he owns are in the rural area. In the future, he would like to use them for agricultural production and thus move up in life, since his aspiration is to own a small piece of land inside the city. He says that he was able to complete only primary school, since he was not able to get a secondary school diploma because of his parents' financial troubles. Adam had to look for work at a young age and thus had no choice but to put aside his studies. That is why now he asks for a loan in order to move up in life and grow, since he has many aspirations. With the loan, he wants to repair his vehicle, a Microbus, which was purchased at the cost of a great sacrifice and with which he hopes to increase his income and thus improve his standard of living. Thanks to the loan he will be further along on the path toward his dream, and will also feel satisfied to have reached this intermediary goal of repairing his vehicle.
