Giovanni Martin's story

Giovanni was born in the city of La Paz, is 31 years old, and works as a radio-taxi driver. He is currently separated from his wife, with whom he has two children. Giovanni has invested his profits in purchasing a second vehicle, which he likewise uses as a radio taxi that earns him a daily income.

Giovanni currently lives in “anticrético” with his sister, which is under their mother’s name. [Note: “anticrético is a Bolivian rental agreement in which tenants pay their landlord a fixed sum rather than a monthly rent].
