Carlos now plays in a mariachi band since he showed an affinity and talent for music at a young age. He plays different instruments such as the guitar, “guitarrón” (a folk guitar with 25 strings), trumpet, violin, and vihuela (another traditional stringed instrument) for various mariachi groups in the city of Cochabamba and in the heartland of Bolivia. Carlos and his siblings have been able to move forward. Now he needs sound equipment so that he can continue to play and generate more income. This is the reason why he is requesting this loan.
