Carina's story

Carina, 42, is a kind woman with two children who she always tries to raise giving them a good education and teaching them good habits. The family lives in their own home and everyone contributes to the household economy in order to lead a better lifestyle.

Carina has a motor-taxi rental business and rents her two vehicles to two people who come to her house daily. They are responsible people with the necessary permits.

She has been in this business for four years now, providing her with extra income since she also works in administration at the local municipality.

Business is doing well and both incomes allow her to enjoy a few home comforts while also supporting her children who are still in school. She hopes to continue her business and, in the future, increase her fleet of vehicles. She plans to use the 1,000 PEN to buy spare parts for vehicle maintenance, since the constant use and passing of time have deteriorated some parts.
