A loan of $4,350 helped a member to buy parts and do maintenance on his taxi.

Ilucion Group's story

Filiberto is another of the illustrious members of the "Ilucion" communal bank. He is 52 years old and states that he has done a number of distinct jobs in his life. For the past 8 years he has opted for the taxi field.

He is a taxi driver. He choose this as he can make money every day. People are always looking for taxi rides. He starts his day very early and as there is no taxi stand he drives around the center of Tierra Blanca and it's neighborhoods looking for passengers. Sometimes people also look for him to make special trips to another community or city. He makes more money doing this. What he likes most about his work is the daily contact with people talking to them and listening to the many stories from the lives of his many clients. He is quite pleased with his small business as he has the opportunity to work and day by day improve his quality of living.

The loan from VisionFund will help Filiberto buy replacement parts and maintain his taxi to continue his work.
