Javier Hilarion's story
Javier is a 34-year-old man. He lives with his partner and has a 2-year-old son and a 5-year-old daughter. His business is providing urban and interdepartmental transportation services. He is a good father, optimistic, happy, has a good attitude, responsible, and very hard working. He does his work in the Pampahasi area, located in the northern part of the city at the foot of the hillside, which was the first Spanish entry into the area. The area is a cold and dry climate, with a temperature that varies during the day between 0 and 12 degrees Celsius. Javier has brown skin, dark eyes, short black hair, a short stature, and a strong physique. His mother tongue is Aymará, which he speaks with his family, and he speaks Spanish in everyday life and for his work. He shares his life with his partner, who sells secondhand clothing, and with his children. His older child is beginning school, and the younger one is still not of school-age. They live in their own room built of cement and brick, with a corrugated iron roof and wooden floor. Their home has drinking water, electricity, and indoor plumbing. His business is providing inter-province transportation services. Daily, he travels to the northern provinces, transportation passengers and cargo. He says that the earthen road damages the vehicle, and that they constantly have to do maintenance work on it. The advantage of his business is that he has continuous and daily clients. The disadvantage is that he lacks the money to pay for the vehicle maintenance and tire change. His dream is to buy himself another vehicle. He wants to pay for the maintenance for his vehicle and to buy tires so that he can continue working. This is his second sequence of loans with the institution in the 10 years that he has worked as a driver. It is for these reasons that Javier requests a loan to pay for vehicle maintenance and to buy tires so that he can continue working and feed his family.
