Demetrio's story

Demetrio H. A. is single and has no children. He came to the Cochabamba tropics to look for work and to have a better life.

Demetrio H. A. is a young man who is dedicated to his work. He works as a taxi drive for the “PORTEÑO” taxi syndicate. He works the route from Ivirgarzama – Pto. Villarroel. He does not have his parents’ support because they recently died. His siblings are married, so he became independent at a very young age. In his time off he works as a bricklayer in different cities.

Demetrio H. A. came to our offices looking for a loan for a down payment on a plot of farm land. This way he will be able to plant citrus and start a new life.

His biggest dream is to be able to have a vast citrus field to be able to increase his income.
