A loan helped to buy tires and spare parts.

Javier Alfonso's story

In the city of Charapoto the Credit Group Rose of Guadalupe meets every fifteen days. This area is known for its traditional culture as well as being just a few minutes from two of the best beaches in the province; San Jacinto and San Clemente. In this places lives Javier, who is 42 years old, married, and has two children, ages 14 and 10. Both are studying, in high school and grade school. His spouse works in a high school.

Javier is a man who works hard to get ahead. Three years ago, with his savings and with great effort, he managed to buy a taxi. He works every day in Portoviejo giving rides to people who use this transportation daily to move from one side of the city to the other. He works from 6 am until 7 pm. He doesn't work later because of the dangers of working at night, and in this way he earns his living and tries to ensure that his family wants for nothing.

This loan is to buy new tires and spare parts that the taxi needs to give a better service. He has two loan cycles with the Credit Group and he likes it because the loans are fast. His dream is to give the best to his family.
