A loan of $800 helped complete maintenance on his vehicle, purchase spare parts, and pay off the remaining balance on his motorcycle so it is completely paid off.

Eucario De Jesús's story

Eucario was born into a humble family in a town in western Antioquia. During his working years he has been lending his services taxiing passengers in the town where he lives and in neighboring areas. He came to this idea due to the need to generate income in order to provide for his family, made up of his wife and his only child. He can take advantage of the fact that the town is well known as a striking tourist destination, and he also has regular customers seeing as he is recognized as one of the pioneers in this type of work as a motorcycle taxi. He works everyday from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm to take advantage of the abundance of people from the region and the tourists who come to visit the town.

Currently Eucario is requesting this loan in order to complete maintenance on his vehicle, purchase spare parts, and pay down the remaining balance on the value of the motorcycle. This will allow him to bring a greater level of security to his passengers, as they depend on the continuity of his work, especially during the coming holiday season in which the tourism in the region, and thus his income, increases. Eucario only wishes to continue safeguarding the wellbeing of his family, offering them a good level of economic stability that will allow them to enjoy a better quality of life together.
