Bolivia
La Paz, Bolivia / Auto Repair

A loan of $1,200 helped construct a wall in the front of his house, the old adobe wall has deteriorated.


Elias's story

Elías V. lives in his own house in the Llojeta area, which is on the west side of the city of La Paz.

Elías is an auto body repairer. He fixes vehicles that have been in accidents. His shop is in his home. The income supports him.

The loan he is asking for is to build a wall enclosing the front part of his house. With the passage of time, the current adobe wall has deteriorated. It is a danger for Elías and for the vehicles that he works on.

This is the sixth time he has asked for a loan. The completed socioeconomic analysis qualifies him for the loan.
