A loan of $975 helped to buy a motorbike.

Sandra Milena's story

Sandra is a woman who strives and works hard. She is 28 years old and earns her living as an independent driver of a mototaxi. She learnt this trade from experience because of the need to help her husband generate the necessary income for the household. She has worked in this activity for one year, with a motorbike she rents for $ 10.00 per day. Her biggest challenge is the competition in her neighborhood, because it is a tradition that the people in the area use this kind of transportation to get around.

The loan she asks for will be used to buy a motorbike. With this motorbike, she will be able to continue offering the transportation service, but generate more profits because she will save on the expense to rent a motorbike.

Sandra’s plan is to continue her hard work and by this to have the possibility to make savings, and in the mid-term future to be able to buy her own home. This would very much improve the living conditions and the well-being of her family.
