A loan of $300 helped to repair his motorcycle.

Wilson Arley's story

35-year-old Wilson lives in the town of Medellín with his wife and his two underage children. After he became unemployed five years ago, he decided to provide messenger and home packet delivery services so that he could get an income to support his household. He first had this idea because he saw the need for it in his neighborhood; many of his neighbors needed to run errands, but didn't have enough time to do that. He works everyday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
His biggest wish is to improve his financial conditions, because his children are currently in school and the expenses have increased. For that reason Wilson works hard everyday so that he can get more customers and improve his profits.
He's currently requesting a loan in order to repair his motorcycle, which is his only means of transportation and livelihood.
