A loan of $900 helped to buy gasoline and a motor for his taxi.


Jaime Ramon's story

Sr. Jaime is 57 years old and lives in Orquídeas (Guayaquil). He began working when he arrived from Spain so that he could have a better quality of life. When he started working, he drove a taxi so that he could support himself in a new country.


Jaime currently works alone as a taxi driver. He works from 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. One difficulty he faces in his work is becoming the victim of an “express kidnapping” (being held at gunpoint and forced to withdraw money from an ATM). He is not married and has no children.


Jaime will use the loan to buy gasoline and a motor. In the future, he wants to own a taxi cooperative so that he can help his mother with everything she needs.
