Zenon Ariel's story

Zenón is 23 years old and lives in the municipality of Cochabamba, between two tropical rivers. He started working at the age of 16 for a petroleum company as a night watchman, and later as an assistant.

Zenón became independent at an early age. He lived in a rental property, but he could not afford it on his salary since he was hired on temporary contracts that lasted between two to four months. However, he was able to accumulate a significant amount in savings which he used to buy a motorcycle so that he could work as a motorcycle taxi driver. He currently provides this service.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy a plot of farmland, which has always been his dream in life. Once he has the loan secured, he will be at the point in time when his dream can become reality. Zenón will be able to work as a farmer and continue growing.
