A loan of $1,425 helped to pay the tax for her yellow taxi.

Julia Isabel's story

July lives in Guayaquil, and is 45 years old. She started driving an older vehicle, providing taxi services to people she knew. Little by little she earned enough income to be able to buy a new vehicle.

Now she does her taxi trips with her husband's help. For now, she is not having any problems and hopes not to have any in the future. She is married, her husband is a taxi driver. They have three minor children, including a daughter with special needs.

She wants to use the loan to pay the taxes she has to pay for operating the taxi. Her dream is to buy another vehicle,improve her income and this way be able to help her husband with the household income. This will enable her to give a better life to her children, and especially to her special needs daughter.
