Luis Miguel's story

Luis Miguel, 20, is a young man who is the oldest of four siblings. He’s a very responsible young man who has worked in his father’s activity which is passenger transportation service since he was 16 years old. To do so, he stopped attending school. Luis Miguel lives with his parents in the community of Abra in the city of Cochabamba.

His main activity is passenger transportation service. He has a minibus that belongs to a public transportation syndicate. The loan will be used to complete the amount he needs to buy another vehicle because he’s short on the amount he needs. Said vehicle will be put to work as a taxi with a driver which will increase his income.

Among his dreams and goals is to support his siblings so that they will stay in school and obtain professional careers since he wasn’t even able to get to high school and to build a house of his own since he has a piece of land inherited from their parents as compensation for all the years he’s been helping them.
