Limber is 23 years old, married to Aurora and works out of his own home, where he has a workshop for making charangos (small wooden guitars). He currently lives about 6 kilometers south of the city of Cochabamba. He rents the home with his wife, with whom he has two children. He plans to use the loan to purchase materials to make the charangos, since he currently does not have sufficient supplies to make and sell them. He has very few products ready for sale, and with the purchase of more materials he will be able to generate more income and one way or another be able to meet the needs of his family. At the moment, his wife is also working with him, and we are providing this little history so you can get to know both of them better.
