A loan of $175 helped purchase paints, tires, and an awning for his bike taxi.

Reynaldo Antonio's story

Reynaldo Antonio is 47 years old, married, and lives in the municipality of Chinandega. He owns a bike taxi and works selling fruits and vegetables from his home. He has regular customers of his bike taxi service, usually businessmen and women who he transports to their work very early in the morning each day. He started out as a rookie on another rented bike and later, with his earnings, he got the idea to purchase his own as he saw that providing this service to local residents and visitors was a good source of income. Reynaldo is requesting a loan in order to purchase tires, pain, and an awning in order to maintain his bike taxi and thus provide better service to his customers. This way he can go on each day improving his earnings, as he is the one responsible for providing for his home and his family.
