Josue Manuel
Josué Manuel is 29 years old and finished high school but he was not able to get into university due to lack of financial resources and orientation, since he had bad influence from his friends. He began working as a mason’s assistant because he didn’t have experience in any trade. He later learned to drive and got his license to work as a driver and drives for his uncle. At the same time he does auto repair work with his uncle in the evenings and promotes events in the mornings. He currently lives in a rented home in the Pacata Alta - Cochabamba- Bolivia zone. He’s single and has no children. He will use the money from this loan to buy a compressor to do auto repair work, since he plans to focus on that in the future.
