A loan of $1,650 helped to buy tires and metal to fix the rims on his motorcycle.


Nicolas Agapito's story

Nicolas lives in Guayaquil. He started because he needed the money to pay for the family’s expenses. He started by renting a ‘tricimoto’ [motorbike with a cart in back for passengers] in order to be able to transport people and to earn $0.25 for ride. He improved his income little by little. In time he bought a tricimoto, and he currently works by himself all day.

The difficulty that he has in his work is the crime that is in the areas where he works.

He is currently in a common-law marriage, and his wife is a housewife. He has two children, and they attend public school.

He wants to use the loan to buy tires and metal to fix the rims. His dream is to buy another tricimoto and to have it in a cooperative.
