A loan of $950 helped to pay insurance for her two school buses.


María's story

María has lived in this town for 12 years. She lives with her husband that works for a gas company, whom she helps with the family expenses. They also have two children and four grandchildren. For around 8 years, she has worked as a school bus driver. She owns two buses. She drives one, and the other is driven by an employee she hired 5 years ago.

The routs they do are only for schools, both preschool and primary.

María has to take care of her grandchildren because one of her daughters works out of town. That is where she puts all of her effort, so they will feel proud of their grandmother. And, when they grow up, they will have the same work ethic.

With the help of our institution, she will pay the insurance on the two school buses. This will benefit all of the children transported each day to their homes, so they will return happy and well to their families.
