A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase a set of tires for his minibus and mandatory vehicle insurance.

Diego Armando's story

Diego is a 28-year-old man and the father of a six-year-old daughter (who appears in the photo). He and his partner are in a common-law relationship. He started out working as a truck driver, but some time ago he began transporting people with a minibus that he acquired. Most of his trips are to the towns in the western part of the Department of Antioquia.

Diego is active, hardworking, and dedicated to his job and his family, who serves as his primary motivation in life. For this reason, he looks for new ways to get ahead and overcome the obstacles that directly affect his work, such as the high price of fuel and spare parts for maintaining his vehicle. For this reason, he is requesting a loan so that he can invest in the purchase of a set of tires for his minibus and mandatory vehicle insurance. This will enable him to provide better service and offer better safety when transporting passengers. As a result, Diego will be able to strengthen his business and generate more income to sustain his household and provide for the well-being of his young daughter.

In the midterm, Diego dreams of acquiring an upgraded model of minibus that is comfortable and spacious so that his passengers will prefer his service. This will lead to a better financial situation for his family so that he can provide his daughter with an excellent education that will help forge a prosperous and successful future for when she grows up.
