Felix Eddy
Eddy is 31 years old and lives in Maica Sud district (stop 8), in the south of the city of Cochabamba. Eddy lives with his mother as he is the youngest sibling. He has a 2 year-old son. He is not married but lives with his son's mother Roxana.

Eddy has a taxi and he also works in milk production together with his partner Roxana. Eddy had to leave school to help his father because his mother had a medical problem with her feet which meant that she couldn't carry out her work producing milk and making quesillo (soft cheese) and his father decided to go to Argentina to work. However, over time, Eddy's father forgot about his family and Eddy was the only one who could support them. He started working with a radio taxi that somebody loaned him but used a loan to buy his own vehicle with which he now works. In this way, he made more income and was able to help his mother to get ahead.

Eddy is now requesting a loan to buy a gas tank for his vehicle. This will enable him to work longer hours and make more income since his partner Roxana takes care of the milk production work and making the quesillo. This will enable him to provide his young son with a better future. It will also enable him to study for a degree himself and help his mother get better so that she can live with him and Roxana for many more years as Eddy values his mother's willpower and desire to get ahead in life.

Eddy is a responsible person who is committed to his work. He dreams of being able to provide his mother and his partner with a better future.
