Carlos Alberto
Carlos Alberto is married and has two children but his wife has been in another country for the last three years because of the difficulty in finding employment. She’s managed to find one but it does not produce enough to help her family here in Bolivia. Carlos works as a delivery truck driver for a firm and the salary he earns is barely enough for his and his children’s sustenance.

Carlos Alberto lives in the Plan 3000 zone about 30 minutes from the central zone and this is why he needs a loan to repair his car that he uses to get to work which is located on the other side of the city in the firm he works for. This will improve his quality of life and he’ll also be able to take his children to school and pick them up keeping them safe from anything dangerous that could happen to them.
