A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase bags to package plaster.

Richard's story

Richard is 24 years old and married to María del Carmen. Together they have a young son and live in the community of Monte Negro in the city of Cochabamba, although they live in one room of his parent's house, where the three of them are very uncomfortable.

His main work is making plaster. Richard is continuing the work that his father did, and he inherited all of his ovens and tools to continue his work. He plans to use this loan to purchase bags to package and sell plaster. Richard and his wife are young, but they are responsible and hardworking, since they are working very hard to carry on the business that his parents worked so hard for.

One of his dreams and goals is to build his own house, since Richard's parents also left him a plot of land.
