Santos Javier's story
Santos is 32 years old and is married with two children, aged 4 and 8. He sells livestock in various markets in the city of El Alto, Bolivia. He lives in the area of Batallas and has his livestock graze on a mountain peak where he has some land. This is his first loan from this institution, and he will use the funds to purchase livestock so he can then bring them to various markets to sell. He is seeking the loan because he lacks working capital. He faces challenges in his business such as decreased demand from time to time, whether it be due to problems with the weather or transportation. Eventually he wishes to buy a truck so that he can transport a larger number of animals.
