Abel's story

Abel is a young man who lives in the town of Colcapirhua in the province of Cochabamba. He still lives with his parents. He went to high school and was unable to continue studying since he had to begin working to support himself. His parents have a lot of commitments and needs. He has 2 little sisters who depend on his parents. He works as a carpenter in his uncle's carpentry shop. He is starting a technical course in auto mechanics to be able to open his own business. He doesn't make very much and he has to pay for his tuition. Bus fare is very expensive so he needs the loan to be able to buy a motorcycle to save money and also to get to his classes on time after work.
