Ita, Paraguay / Taxi

A loan of $900 helped to buy repair parts for his taxi.


Blas's story

Blas, 33, lives in the city of Itá with his wife, with whom he has two children. He has been part of a charter taxi service in his community for 6 years and has his own stop. He tells us that with a lot of hard work and sacrifice he is getting ahead. Before he used to work and be dependent on others, but thanks to this job he was able to become independent and move forward.

The loan requested is to buy repair parts for his vehicle since it is his work tool and is what allows him to bring home the daily bread.
