A loan of $1,625 helped to buy a vehicle for work.


Rafael's story

Rafael's the father of a family. He works 15 kilometers from his house. On the weekend he works as a messenger in the business districts in his province, for which he uses a borrowed motorcycle.

He needs to increase his income because his salary is the only money coming into the household. He'll also use the motorcycle to get to work because it's quite far from where he lives.

He's requesting 800,000 colones [CRC] to acquire a means of transportation.
