A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a motorcycle.


Esau Antonio's story

Esau, 26, is single and lives with his parents. He has been working for two and a half years as a salesman in a store. When he finished high school, he was offered the opportunity to work there and did not think twice to start, despite his lack of experience. This is currently his only activity. His workplace is located 3 km away from home, but he travels to nearby cities as part of his job. He works from 7 am to 5 pm.

He is requesting a loan to buy a motorcycle, which will be useful since it will make it easier for him to go to work. Sometimes, unplanned things happen and he has to go to the city using public transport, which is an irregular service. This takes him all day. With a motorcycle, travel times will be less and he will not spend all day travelling. He travels around 45 km every day.

His dream for the future is to open his own business, more specifically a store since he has the required experience. He knows he will have to work hard for this, so that when the moment of having a family comes, he can have the necessary income in order to give them everything they need.
