A loan of $900 helped to buy tires and to pay for auto repairs.


David Efrain's story

Sr. David is 41 years old and lives in Guayaquil. He started working as a taxi driver when he lost his job. When he decided to start his own business, he purchased an automobile. He works by himself every day from 5:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M.

David worries about the rampant crime since thieves can board his taxi whenever he drives through the most dangerous areas. He is married and his wife helps since she works for a company. They have two children who attend a state school.

David greatly wants his children to move ahead with their studies, so he sees to it that they lack nothing. With this loan, he will buy tires and pay for auto repairs. In the future, he wants to be successful and acquire a yellow cab. For now he has an informal taxi, so he would like to increase his earnings in the future.
