A loan of $1,200 helped to repair his taxi, in order to support the family.

Edwin Erick's story

Edwin and Monica have been married for 9 years and have 2 daughters. The family lives in Villa Paraiso, some 15 minutes from the Plan 3000 zone and 45 minutes from the city. They survive on the earnings of the head of the family, Edwin, who offers transport services, using his own vehicle, as a taxi driver. Since his daughters are in secondary school, the costs continue to increase and the income of a taxi driver is insufficient, at times. They have to refrain from buying some things and postpone paying for other expenses.

The problem is that Edwin's taxi is damaged and since it is his only source of income, this affects his ability to sustain his family. In order to be able to do so, he needs to repair his vehicle, so that he can improve his family's quality of life.
