Jaime Alfonso's story

Jaime is married and has three children. The eldest of his children is 15 years old and all of them attend school. He covers his needs through his work as a taxi driver. It's very tiresome and dangerous work, since he has to drive through some areas that have a high crime rate. However, he has to do it, since he has no other source of income. His wife doesn't work and she's in charge of housekeeping. The loan that Jaime requests is for improving the bathroom walls which are made of plastic and the floor of the bedroom in his house. That way he'll improve his living conditions as much as he can within his means.
