Being old is considered to be difficult to find a job in society and sometimes results in the elderly becoming a burden to their children in taking care of and having various expenses that must be the duty of the family to be responsible for.
But that’s not the case with Bounlieng, who even at the age of 70 years old, can still work to earn money with Loca and live without having to rely on his children.
Bounlieng used to work as a driver for a foreign organization for many years until 2016. After then, he retired from work and received a pension instead without having to work anymore.
But since he is a person who does not stop to work and does not want to be a burden to his children, he decided to take his car and his free time to drive a taxi service with Loca in 2019 from what he saw on media advertisements and recommendations from his children.
“During the beginning, there must be many obstacles to overcome because I am not very knowledgeable about the use of technology or apps, but luckily there is a Loca support team who gave good advice and help so that I could start to provide Loca service to customers better until the customers began to trust and let me drive for them,” Bounlieng said about his time in the beginning with Loca.
“My children were worried when I first came to drive with Loca. They were worried that there wouldn’t be many customers who would use the service and I might waste my time. But after 2-3 months of driving, they saw that I could make real money and it was increasing because more tourists started to come to our country, and I was able to prove to their children that I could also support myself by working.” Bounlieng said more.
Currently, it has entered the 4th year that Bounlieng has been driving with Loca, even though it is a job that requires a lot of energy to drive, he is happy working as a service, he has learned to use technology, and he has met a variety of people during the trip and most importantly, he still has an income that can support himself and taking the pension that he gets each month to save in case of illness without being a burden to his children.
No matter what gender you are, what age you are, or whether you are young or old, as long as you have a car and have free time, you can use it to generate income with Loca. Those interested in applying can contact the number: 020 98111129 (call and WhatsApp).
