A loan of $1,025 helped to repair a vehicle used for work.

Mario's story

The member Mario is from a poor family. Two years ago he was working as a municipal policeman dependent on the honorable municipal city council of the city of Tarija. A father of 4 children, he morally and financially supports his wife, who makes traditional food. The member helps her in the evenings to cook. As they are residents of the city of La Paz, it was very hard to win over customers, but now she has enough customers who like the dishes prepared by her, however, economically they still need to be settled. So they bought a vehicle to use as public transport and earn extra income for their family. For this reason he is asking for a loan in order to repair his car and then entrust it to a trust-worthy driver who can work regularly every day of the week, which greatly favors the member as his income will increase and he will be able to offer his family a better status in life.
