Emerson's story

Emerson is 31 years old and married to Idaura. They have a two-year-old son. Emerson currently lives on a plot of land provided by his mother-in-law so that he could have a space where he can live with his family. Every day he conducts his business of driving a motorcycle taxi. His work consists of traveling through the main streets of the city in search of passengers. Emerson takes his customers to their destination without incident and he believes safety is the most important factor. He always gives out his mobile phone number so that customers can contact him whenever they need transportation services. Emerson has five years of experience and the quality of his work is the key behind developing his trade.

Emerson complements this business by selling clothes, which he considers to be a profitable venture. He is taking this opportunity to request 3,000 PEN. For this reason, he is grateful to those who made this loan possible since it will help him accomplish his goals. In addition, he promises to complete his payments in a punctual manner. The amount he requested will be invested in the repair of his motorcycle taxi so that it will function in an optimal manner. Part of the money will be invested in the renovation of his clothing shop.
