A loan of $500 helped construction.


Teofilo Cesar's story

Teofilo Gutiérrez Sánchez lives in his own house in Villa la Merced, on a hillside north of the city of La Paz, with his wife, Victoria Patti, and their two daughters.

Teofilo is a mechanic and works in a car repair shop that he owns in his neighborhood, and he supports his family with that income.

He will use the loanhe is applying for to build two new rooms on the back of his house, since his daughters don't have space for their daily use. This is the fourth time that he has requested a loan, and the socioeconomic evaluation performed qualifies him to receive a loan.
