A loan of $1,200 helped to buy equipment to prepare food for social events.


Javier's story

Javier is 44 years old and lives in his own house which he shares with his brothers household and which is located in the Lourdes neighborhood in the city of Tarija. Javier is married and has two children who are 20 and 13 years old and who he cares for and supports in their education and studies. Javier has been working for more than 10 years as a public employee. On the weekends he makes food for special occasions like birthdays, baptisms, and other events. Javier would like to have more income in order to move forward together with his family, but he says that he has to buy better equipment to be able to prepare food because what he has now is small. It’s for this reason that the loan is for the purchase of that equipment because that way he can increase his income. Javier says that he wants to improve his living conditions, and for this reason he says that the next loan he asks for will be to expand the business he has.
