A loan of $400 helped to buy tires and upholstery for his motorcycle taxi.

Carlos's story

Carlos is a 25-year old man, single and with no children. He owns a house that he's currently building with a lot of effort and dedication. Carlos makes a living carrying passengers inside and outside the city and uses his motorcycle taxi. After almost 2 years at this job, he has been exposed to all kind of situations and says he enjoys what he does and the fact that he can organize his own time. Things are going well now for him as he's learned to identify the hours and places where he always finds available passengers. He would like to continue working and to buy another vehicle for rentals.

He's requesting a loan for 1,000 soles and is grateful to those that fund it and give him the necessary support to continue working towards his goals and to be punctual and responsible in his payments. He plans to use the loan to buy three tires to repair his motorcycle taxi, deteriorated as a result of the bad conditions of the roads and the passing of time. He'll also upholster his vehicle and pay labor costs.
