German
German is 38-year-old man. He is married without children, and his profession is fishing.

He is enterprising, persevering, determined, strong, and very hard-working. He does his work in the community of Batallas, a place characterized by its proximity to Lake Titicaca and its altitude (4000 meters above sea level).

German is of medium height and has brown skin and short black hair. His business is fishing: every day he takes on the task of transporting his nets and casting them out in the waters of Lake Titicaca, where he waits hours and then pulls them in again. His working hours vary depending on the season, the weather and the species.

His dream is to increase his production in order to generate more income and build an additional room for his house. He needs to buy an outboard motor for his fishing boat, which will allow him to fish in deeper waters of the lake.

For this reason, German is requesting a loan to buy a motor for his boat, and with the profits he will build a room for his family.
