A loan of $1,000 helped to buy lumber.


Paul Ramiro's story

Paul is a good client of the institution; this is his second loan that he’s repaid on time. He has a carpentry shop where his usual production is kitchen furniture and cots. Paul’s wife is called Nieves and she farms coca leaves in the Yungas (name given in Bolivia to the hot region of the north-east where famous coffee is raised). Coca leaf cultivation is very demanding field work and to sell her products Nieves must necessarily come to the city of La Paz. She has two children. Paul’s work is also very hard because he has to lift the heavy lumber. The loan is to buy lumber to make furniture.
