Juan
Juan is 33 years old and lives in the community of "14th of January," located in the Syndicate of San Gabriel de las Sendas, municipality of Chimore, Carrasco province, in the City of Cochabamba. He lives with his wife Mercedes and their children. His principal activity is agriculture but, in addition, he is a chauffeur.

Juan is a person who since childhood, has had to confront life by working every day. He lacked the opportunity to study because, together with his brothers, he headed out to the fields to work his father's agricultural plots. With the passage of time, and with arduous labor, Juan learned that only his own efforts could lead him to achieve certain goals he had outlined. While Juan worked hard as a driver and farmer, his children were growing and now he has more responsibilities, because only through hard work can he provide their daily food. At present, he has 2 agricultural parcels that he cultivates. And now he is requesting a loan to construct a pool for raising fish, to begin developing a new activity from which more income can result, and a better standard of living for himself and his family.

Juan hopes that his children will have a better future than he had to suffer through. Obtaining their high school diplomas and enrolling them in higher education will be his next goals. He will work very hard to make this achievable, so that he can see his children enjoy fuller and improved lives in the future.
