A loan of $600 helped to buy replacement parts for his taxi's steering assembly.


Jorge Luis's story

Jorge Luis is a responsible man who is concerned with getting ahead together with his family. He works long hours as a taxi driver during the night shift, which makes his work dangerous at times. With his income he covers the basic needs of his two children, one of whom is 16 years old and the other just 4 months of age. His desire is to see them become true professionals with a range of work opportunities that he was not able to have. Jorge Luis is requesting the loan to invest in his taxi unit. He is constantly having to invest money in it, because of the bad state of the roads in Managua, which do not provide good conditions for his vehicle, causing it to deteriorate. He needs to invest so that he can continue working and covering his household expenses.
