A loan of $650 helped to buy tires, shock absorbers and a radiator.


Marvin David's story

Marvin David, 35 years old, has worked as a taxi cab driver for 10 years. This is a very tiring and dangerous job in certain areas of the city and it is how he supports his family every day. Through his job and with help from his wife, who works as a cashier at a gas station, he has been able to send his son to a private school.

He will use the loan he is requesting to repair his car, which he has to drive long distances every day as well as over some streets that are in a bad condition in Managua. He needs to buy tires, shock absorbers and a radiator so his car can hold up a bit longer until he can afford to buy another vehicle through a taxi cab cooperative. This is what he plans to do in the future so he can continue supporting his family.
