A loan of $1,100 helped to buy tires and tools.


Angel Polivio's story

Ángel, age 52, lives in Quevedo, Ecuador. He started working with a tricycle in 1988. He transported passengers and cargo. Then he had the opportunity to associate with a cooperative, and he bought a ‘moto taxi’ [three wheeled motorized vehicle]. This helped him a lot because it was more comfortable, less tiring, and produced more money. He works as a driver from 6:00 a.m. until the nighttime. The times that it is difficult for him to work are when it rains and when he is ill. He does not have a wife. He has three daughters, and they attend public school. He will use the loan to buy tires and tools. In the future he wishes to be able to increase his business with more three wheeled motorized vehicles.
