Roberto Marcelo
Roberto is a single gentleman who is 33 years of age. He works at a major beverage distribution company that is located 10 kilometers outside of the city of Cochabamba. Roberto currently lives in an area west of Cochabamba that is 7.5 kilometers away. The house where he lives belongs to his parents and he lives with them and his siblings. He has no dependent children.

This new loan will be used to buy merchandise (beverages to sell). With this new business, Roberto will be able to have more income so that he can meet the needs of his family in one way or another. At the moment, he does not generate good income from his work. For this reason, CIDRE is presenting Roberto’s story so that it can be shared with everyone.
