The executive praised the local CNG fuelling control system Infogas, which enables many people to access loans. “We have made banking services available for taxi drivers, whom previously had no access to credit,” he explained.
Lima’s Caja Metropolitana is part of the 21 organizations that have joined Cofide system. “In the case of Caja Metropolitana, it recovers the money by an amount that is separated from what is consumed daily in the CNG station by taxi drivers. In case of conversions to natural gas, the payment is made within 18 months, whereas you will have four years to pay if you buy a brand new vehicle,” Pimentel said.
