Luis is 39 years old, married, and has two little children. They live together on his mother's land where they have built their own home. Luis's work consists of transporting passengers from one place to another in a safe and rapid manner. He has a mototaxi which allows him to do this work every day of the year. He has been doing this work for over seven years, he works alone, and each day he renews his energy to work with great enthusiasm. He always doing his best so that at the end of the day he may witness the fruits of his labor. He enjoys his work a lot, although at the beginning it was difficult to work as a mototaxi operator because Luis worried that the long hours he had to drive were hurting his kidneys. Now he is properly managing his hours and doing his job more optimally which has allowed his earnings to increase and allowed him to continue working as usual. For this loan he is requesting 1,000 soles, and he is grateful for the opportunity and the confidence placed with him in granting him this loan. Likewise he promises to comply with the timely payments. With the amount requested Luis will purchase some replacement parts and accessories that he needs to repair his mototaxi in order to continue his work.
