A loan of $600 helped to buy stock items for his store.


Jaime's story

Jaime lives in his parents’ house in La Paz’s Tembladerani neighborhood. He was widowed a year ago and has no children. He’s a carpenter employed at a carpentry shop where he is paid the minimum wage. He set up a grocery store in one of the rooms in his parents’ house. The loan he is asking for is to stock the store. Because it’s the only one in the neighborhood customer demand is high. He hopes thus to increase income and improve his standard of living. This is the first time he’s requested a loan and his social characteristics suggest it be granted.
