Abel's story

Abel works as a driver. He is a member of the Pedro Domingo Murillo Trufi 83 drivers' union and his stop is located in Ciudad Satélite, in the city of El Alto. He has been working as a member of this union for ten years. Mr. Abel is married and has one child. His wife is a saleswoman and helps support him with their household expenses. Abel has lived in his parents' home for a long time. The house is located in Villa Victoria neighborhood, in the city of La Paz. Abel will use his loan to refurbish his vehicle and to buy a permit which allows him to run his taxi on a particular route in the city. This is how he makes income for his household. This is Abel's first loan and the socio-economic analysis we have performed qualifies him favorably to obtain a loan.
