Juan Carlos
Sr. Juan Carlos O. A. is 34 years old and lives in the Florida neighborhood of the city of Tarija. He is still not married and lives at his mother’s house. For more than five years, Juan has been providing passenger transport services and is a member of the Chapaco taxi drivers union.

Juan wants to start a family, have children, and see future grandchildren. He says he lives in an adobe house that was constructed a long time ago, so he wants to build additional rooms so that his siblings and his mother will be more comfortable.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy spare parts for his vehicle so that he can continue working as a taxi driver. Juan says that his greatest wish is to provide all the comforts for his siblings and his mother. In addition, he indicates that the next loan he requests will be used to buy another vehicle so that he can improve the financial conditions of his household.
