Jorge Luis


A loan of $425 helped to buy a car navigation system.


Jorge Luis's story

Luis has been working as a taxi driver for 5 years. He is a public accountant, but due to the level of unemployment in the country at the moment he is not working in his chosen profession. He has a son who is 15 years old. Both himself and his wife work every day and are willing to work all hours, all for their daughter to get ahead. His wife works night shifts in a casino. His work as a taxi driver is a help to her as he can drive her home very late at night.

With this new loan he is thinking about buying a navigation system for the car. This will provide greater security as travels through the streets with passengers, as he has the responsibility as the driver and he wants to ensure that his clients travel safely.
