Ismael's story

Ismael is a client of Kubo Financiero, and this is his story:

Ismael is 43 years old. He has been married for eight years and has two children, ages 5 and 7. His wife is named Miriam; she works in the home, although she also helps him with his shoe sales. He has lived in a rental house for two years, and he shares the expenses of the home with his siblings.

Ismael has a taxi, which he drives six days a week in order to have one day off. Besides running his taxi, Ismael sells shoes from a catalog, along with his wife. In this way he has an additional source of income. He is asking for this loan to make necessary arrangements for his taxi: to insure it, to register it, and to fix some parts such as the power steering, the shock absorbers, and the brake discs.

Thanks to his job, Ismael has managed to get his own taxi and get his family ahead, with a good quality of life. His main goal is to own his own house or condo.
