Jhony's story

Mr. Jhony H. C., 25, came to Ivirgarzama since he couldn’t find work in Chochabamba. He was orphaned at a very young age and grew up living with his older sister until he was 20. He couldn’t enter the university because he had to work. He put some money together working as a mason and started selling clothing in the market at the beach of Ivirgarzama. He came to Ivirgarzama because one of his friends told him that in the tropics there was work for salespeople. He left his family in Cochabamba and came to work as a merchant in Ivirgarzama.

He is requesting a loan to buy merchandise so that he can increase his income because he wants to start a family in the future.
