A loan of $1,400 helped to repair his motor.


Juan Nicolas's story

Juan Nicolás, 49, has worked as a driver since the age of 15. He started out working with his uncle and later on used his savings to buy his own vehicle that he uses to provide transportation services. He hauls building materials and farm supplies. He heads out daily to the municipality of Carmen de Viboral seeking customers.

Because of some mechanical failures, his vehicle’s motor needs repairs in order to function properly. Because of this, Juan is requesting a loan to repair the motor so he can continue working. His greatest wish is to be able to replace his pick-up truck with a truck so he can provide service not only in his location but also throughout the department. His great difficulty is instability in his work because it does not generate steady income so he’s had to learn to live with what he’s able to earn. He hopes his economic situation will change.
