Henry is 31 years old and he is single. His mainly works as a taxi driver for a Radio Movil company. He has his own car and he works 6 days-a-week. He lives in the southern area of the town of Cochabamba, one of the poorest neighborhood of this town. Henry is still living in his parent’s house; he does not have a garage of his own because his parents’ house has been built on a slope, and for this reason he rents a parking lot every night. His parents’ house is very humble, and he shares a room with his brothers. He contributes to half of the electricity and water expenses. The brand of the car he has bought asks for the highest repair costs; since the car had not been technically checked when he bought it, and as it already shows mechanical flaws due to constant use, he needs to have it repaired; it is for this reason that the loan he is requesting will be used to pay for the maintenance works on and for the general repairs of his car.
