Leandro is 53 years old and married to Neida. They have four children who are all grown up and live independently. Leandro lives in the Mutualista zone. He came to the city from Camiri 20 years ago. He started his business from a very small sales location in his home. His business gradually grew into what it is now: a much bigger and better stocked store.
The loan that Leandro has been given will be used to repair the vehicle which he uses to go and buy his merchandise. Leandro was delighted by the speed with which he was granted his loan. He is a good, hard-working person who is grateful to the institution for the support they have provided.
