Juan De Dios Lino's story
Juan de Dios is 33 years old. He is married to Carmen. They have a child and live in his mother's house. Since he was very young, he had to work to help his family. He finished college. He is from Tarija, and since he was very young, he would sing ballads. He became familiar with many tourist places in the city and he decided to study Tourism and with a lot of hard work he finished his studies and started to work as a tourist guide for tourism agencies. At the same time, he learned technical English for tourism and other fields. Over time, he was able to go off on his own and now he works offering his services to hotels, lodgings, hostals or wherever his services are required. He knows the city very well and he has contracts with the vineyards that are a part of the Wine Route, as well as other places, such as Los Chorros de Jurina, the Valle de los Cóndores, the Cañón de la Angostura, etc. Juan de Dios needs help to buy furniture and fixtures to open his own tourism agency, because the tourism market is growing in Tarija. This way, he can improve his service to tourists and also improve his financial situation for his family's wellbeing.
