Jorge's story

Jorge B. Saldia is a young man aged 21. He lives in the town of Cochabamba in the northern zone in a neighbourhood known as Villa Huanuni. He currently lives with his parents while he studies and works.

Jorge is studying electrical engineering in the INFOCAL Institute. He has also been working as an assistant mechanic at Mecánica Automotriz SETRA for over two years. He chose this profession and loves it. Jorge wants a loan to buy tools so that he can begin doing repairs on his own and thus earn a bit of extra money.

His greatest dream is to be able to open his own workshop one day so that he can have a better future and earn enough money to support the whole family on his own.
