A loan of $500 helped to purchase a motorcycle to help travel to his work.

Elmer's story

Elmer, 34, is married with two children aged 5 and 6. He is a welder and works in a workshop in the town of Junta Pirai. This is his first cycle with the institution.

Elmer will use this loan to purchase a motorcycle, which he needs to be able to carry out his work efficiently and fulfill his contracts. The motorcycle will enable him to travel quickly between his home and his work, as he has a long distance to cover each day. He works in a rural area and the roads are in a poor condition for vehicles, therefore a motorcycle will be very useful.

Elmer is applying for this loan to continue to improve in his work. He is a very hardworking person and is grateful for the opportunity to take a loan, as his job is his only livelihood.
