A loan of $1,375 helped to improve his taxi.

Paulino Roberto's story

Paulino is 51 years old, married, and has a son. [Paulino] owns a taxi, offers his services in the city of Chiandega, and takes his passengers to where they want to go, without regards to the heat that he deals with as he drives around the city. He wants to provide daily support for his household. He is an entrepreneurial man but despite his daily efforts with his taxi, it became necessary for him to find another option by which to increase his income. This is how he came to start his clothing business in the local Chinandega market, where he sells cosmetics and various types of clothing for adults and children. His wife works as a saleswoman. He is an elderly man and he wants to ensure a peaceful old age for his wife so the he and she will not be wary of not having their basic needs met. Paulino is asking for this loan so that he can make improvements to his taxi and also buy merchandise so that he can keep working hard as before. He is grateful for the lenders’ help to those who are motivated to work to secure their futures.
