A loan of $1,500 helped to buy an engine and wheels.


Juan's story

Juan is a driver, loving father, and grandfather. Juan offers taxi service around the city and works daily. While he may be his own boss, he works from 8:00 in the morning so that he can have lunch with his family, and then he goes back to driving the car which is the basis of his job and lets him earn income each day. He lives with his mother, two small grandchildren, and his daughter, who takes care of the house. He is the father figure for his grandchildren. His engine is showing wear and tear, and he will use this loan to buy another and to change the tires. Juan is certain that his car will last for many more years with these repairs and that he will have a secure income with which to support his family.
