Agustin's story

Agustín is a carpenter. Sometimes he works on big contracts that take three to six months to complete like making built in units, window and door frames, etc. in buildings and hotels. He also works in private homes varnishing doors and windows. He is currently working making cedar window frames.

Agustín lives with his three children in an area that’s a distance away from the city of La Paz; he and his wife bought a piece of property with much effort where they built their house.

Because he currently leases some of the machinery he works with, Agustín wants to eventually own all the necessary equipment so that his income will improve thus providing a better future for his three children.

He is asking for funds to buy bricks and to pay labor costs to build more rooms onto his house thus providing more comfort for his family.
