A loan of $1,300 helped to buy a vehicle.

Salvador's story

Salvador is 45 years old and completed up to third grade at school. He is married; his wife is a housewife.

Salvador works for an organisation that exports coffee. He has been doing this work for three years and, as an additional source of income, he sells ice lollies from home. Salvador's workplace is a five minute motorcycle ride from his home. He works from 7am until 7pm.

Salvador is applying for this loan from "Fundación Campo" in order to buy a vehicle. Salvador used his previous loan to buy a motorcycle and this has improved his living conditions. Before he had to walk to work and when he went out to sell ice lollies. Now he can do this work on his motorcycle. Salvador will use this loan to buy a motorcycle which he can use for his work - he can run journeys for the organisation as on occasions there are no vehicles available to transport the coffee. Having this motorcycle would represent a higher income in his work.

Salvador's dream is to buy this motorcycle with the help of the loans provided by "Fundación Campo". He hopes to give his children the best he can and to prepare them to study at university and take on a profession.
