A loan of $225 helped repair motorcycle taxi for public transportation services.


Teresa's story

Teresa D. Jesús, age 56, has 5 grown-up children who are all independent. She currently lives with her husband, Mario, who supports her in everything she does. Three years ago, she purchased a motorcycle taxi with her husband, who drives it with many years of experience in this field. Their job is to offer public transportation services all day. Teresa manages the finances and is also in charge of having the motorcycle taxi repaired when it is having problems. What she likes about this job is that it generates good profits, which is why she is thinking about purchasing another motorcycle taxi. This way, she can give a job to a driver in need of employment. Now, with the loan she is requesting, she wants to have her vehicle repaired so that they can continue to offer their services, as well as save money to purchase another motorcycle taxi.
