A loan of $1,500 helped to have his taxi's engine repaired.

Sergio's story

Sergio, who is a single young man, lives in his mother's home which is 45 minutes from the city. He provides a taxi service, using his own car. he negotiates the different arterial roads of the city in his car which is now getting rather old. Having damaged the engine recently, he is now unable to work, but he needs to have his vehicle in a good condition so he can buy food for his mother and younger brothers and sisters whom he also helps. He, therefore, needs the loan to have his taxi's engine repaired so he can continue to help his mother to support the family and to be able to improve his needy family's quality of life.
