A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a plot of land.

Jahuer's story

Jahuer is 22, and he has been married to Lizeth Zurita for two years. They have a two year old daughter who goes to nursery school. They still live in Lizeth’s mother’s house.

Jahuer is a taxi driver. He has his own car, which he uses to work all over the city of Cochabamba. His wife sells ecological coal in La Cancha, a commercial area. Together they generate enough income to be able to support their family.

Jahuer needs money to be able to buy a plot of land. That way he would be able to become independent and build his own house. This would improve the quality of life for his daughter and his wife. In the future, he wants to ask for another loan to be able to finish building his house, to keep progressing, and keep improving life conditions for all of his family.
