Miguel Ángel, 29, still lives in his in-laws’ house which is located in one of the city of Tarija’s neighborhoods. Miguel Ángel is married and has a 5 year old son who he cares for and helps to educated alongside his wife, Eva. Since he was little, his father taught him how to work first as a bricklayer and now he works detailing and painting cars.

He now needs to work in order to get ahead with his wife and son. For the last five years Miguel has been working as an auto body repairman; he is very well known by his customers who request his services. He wants to earn better income to get ahead but he tells us that he needs to buy more work tools to do so because his business has grown much and the tools he has are no longer sufficient. He hopes this way to do the jobs more quickly and efficiently so the loan will be used to buy said work tools to increase his income. Miguel tells us that he wants to improve his living conditions so among his hopes and goals is to build his own house.
