Coco Victor
Coco is a very humble, hardworking person who works providing passenger transportation in his taxi. He travels through the streets of Cochabamba looking for customers. He’s handicapped because he injured his leg several years ago in an accident. However, he never stopped striving to continue forward. His spouse abandoned him and their little girl who is now 4-years-old; he loves her very much and she gives him the strength to face his reality of not having anyone else who can help him care for her. He does not neglect her education but has to leave her at a day-care center in the morning where she stays all day while he works. He wants the loan to provide general service to his work tool which with the passage of time and the use of gasoline as fuel deteriorates the car more quickly.
