A loan of $1,025 helped with building his home: the finish work.


Jose Luis's story

Señor José Luis has been married to Martha for over six years. They are both 32 and can read and write. Jose Luis and Martha have four children, three of whom are in school. They live in the Candelaria community, in the Mosoj Rancho village toward the north of Colomi, Cochabamba. They have lived there for over 11 years. Jose Luis and his wife work in agriculture. They sow potato, beans, and papalisa potatoes. They cultivate a plot of land they they inherited from their parents, in the Salto "B" community. Jose Luis tells us that he build a two-story home and invested all of their savings in it. They do not have enough money for the finish work. Because of this, they have decided to request a loan from our Cidre office. They have had a positive experience here, because other institutions had many requisites. They are very happy because now they will be able to live more comfortably and work for their family's future.
