A loan of $1,500 helped to maintain his taxi and buy tires.

Michael Jordan's story

Michael Jordan is 24 years old and lives in Cochabamba, Bolivia. He is single and doesn't have any children. He studied through high school, but he wasn't able to go further. His family didn't have much savings, so he wasn't able to pursue a college degree like he would have liked.

Since he was very small, he knew how to work to help his family and to pay for his education. Michael Jordan works in public transportation, offering his services to the population of Cochabamba. Even though he is in a lot of danger because there are a lot of assaults and crimes against taxi drivers, Michael Jordan is hardworking, humble, and responsible.

The current loan requested by Michael Jordan is for car repairs and tire replacement, since he doesn't have much income and can't cover the costs of its maintenance. Nevertheless, he works with his car in that condition because he needs to help with the family income so that they can cover their expenses.
