A loan of $800 helped to buy construction materials.


Lucio's story

Lucio lives in El Torno. He was born in the Cochabamba department, but he moved to Santa Cruz to look for work. His wife, with whom he has six children, sells food at the community’s central market. She has had this business for six years.

He devotes himself to transporting people from El Torno to the city of Santa Cruz. He has been doing this for eight years.

The loan is to finish building his house. He needs to buy construction material. He is one of the institution’s oldest clients. He demonstrated responsibility in making his payments, and he is very hard-working. He is grateful to the institution for the support that has been provided.
