Carlos Jose's story

Carlos is a man with three children one of which is attending university and two are in secondary school. He’s practically a single father since his wife emigrated to another country seeking a better life while he continues working as a taxi driver. For a long time he’s dreamed with having his own work vehicle but has been unable to do so; he must lease a taxi in order to work and earn a living daily to support his children’s schooling. The loan he’s requesting is to buy building materials and supplies to build room divisions to insure his children’s comfort.
