A loan of $550 helped to buy upholstery and spare parts for his mototaxi.

Guido's story

Guido, 48, is married to Narda and is the father off three children that live with him in his own house. Guido works driving a mototaxi; he heads out into the city streets looking for customers to transport inside and outside the city calmly and tranquilly because he feels that his passengers’ safety is most important. In the same way, he always gives them his cell phone number so that any customer who might need his services can contact him.

He’s been doing this work for 16 years and he also works as an electrician or providing logistic services to certain institutions occasionally. At the beginning he didn’t do too well but he states that the situation has changed now and his income has multiplied thanks to recommendations from his customers.

He hopes to continue working now and later on to acquire more mototaxis to start leasing them out and generating more family income. On this occasion he will request 1,500 soles and he’s grateful for the financial support he gets to continue moving forward. In addition, he commits to make his payments punctually. He will use the amount requested to replace the upholstery and some spare parts his mototaxi needs so that it will be in optimal condition.
