A loan of $775 helped to buy tyres and maintain her vehicle.


Gavy's story

Gavy, who is 32, is married with a 4-month-old baby. She lives with her family in her mother's house. She hires out her second-hand motorcycle taxi to a relative who pays her daily to use the vehicle. She supplements this job by selling clothing or decorating children's parties with fabric and balloons. She greatly enjoys everything she does and makes every effort to approach her daily work with great optimism. Her great ambition now is to buy another motorcycle taxi to hire out, as a means of supplementing her main source of income. On this occasion, she will apply for a loan of 2000 soles and is very happy to know that she will have the financial support to continue to move forward. Furthermore, she pledges that she will repay her debt punctually. She will use the requested amount to buy tyres and have some repairs done on her work vehicle.
