Jorge is a simple man coming from a humble family, and for this reason he has had to start working form a very young age. He finished high school and was able to enter university, but he had to abandon his studies because neither he nor his family had the necessary financial resources. Given this fact, he started working. In time he succeeded in buying the truck he has been working with for more than 4 years as a driver, delivering cargo from the Bolivian National Customs Office in Cochabamba. He is an active member of the Urban Transportation Syndicate, whose job is to retrieve products from Customs. Jorge is married with Delia, and he has two children who go to school. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy wheels for his truck, since the ones he has are very old and they need to be changed as soon as possible.
