Orlando Henry
The client is 24 and he lives between rivers in the tropical area of Cochabamba. He has a partner and they have a 1-year old daughter.

Orlando came to the tropics from the province around Cochabamba department for better working opportunities. In the city salaries are low and prices for products that families need continue to get more expensive and he hardly made enough to survive.

When he arrived he tells us that he came with only a few pieces of clothing from his in-law’s house. There he transported fruit during the season to sell in the city of Santa Cruz . But even then Orlando couldn’t find steady work. He looked for work with businesses but he wasn’t chosen. Tired of waiting he wanted to return to Cochabamba when suddenly one of the companies called him and he has been working there since.

With the passing of time little by little he saved some money and bought a lot in the urban area. He built a small house and now he is requesting a loan to continue enlarging it with just a bit more construction to be more comfortable. His dream is to have his own business. This would help him get ahead with his current situation and then he would like to buy a house in Cochabamba.
