David Carlos's story

David lives in the Pasankeri Sur area of La Paz. Both the house he lives in and the lot it’s on were passed down to him from his parents. He currently has a two-story house that he got through his own efforts. He has a one-year-old son and lives with his wife, Virginia, who supports all David’s efforts inspiring him both in good times and bad. David manufactures coffins. He has been in this line of work for 10 years having learned the trade as a young man working as his uncle’s assistant. He will use the funds to buy a band saw that he calls a “never ending circular saw.” He is very grateful to the institution for the support. His wife is pictured with him in the photo.
