Felix Marcial's story

Sr. Felix is 39 years old and lives in the District of Puntiti, which is six kilometers from the city of Cochabamba. He resides there with his family, which consists of his wife Matilde and their three children (ages 14, 9, and 6). His children attend elementary and high school, respectively. Felix works as a bricklayer throughout the year and has been in this profession for more than 20 years. He works on various construction jobs in different areas of the city and in other provinces. His wife Matilde manages a grocery store located in their home so that they can grow financially. They bought a plot of land and now have two rooms, so they need capital to invest in inventory for their store. This will enable them to keep growing so that they can finish the construction of their home. At the moment, they are working hard in order to improve the living conditions for their children.
