Jorge Anibal's story

Jorge is 57 years old, married, and has two children. He has not lived with his wife for almost 5 years because they have separated due to personal problems. Jorge lives in his mother's house, and his primary work is as to drive his own microbus. It took a lot of sacrifice to purchase the microbus, and he had to restrict expenses for a long time to be able to cover the cost of the vehicle. For almost the entire past year, Jorge has been ill, and a large part of his savings has been spend on doctors and medicine. Luckily, he was able to recover from his illness and pay for his medical expenses, but he was not able to cover the expenses of the microbus. The microbus is the only source of income that he has to support himself and his two children, to whom he sends money every month. Jorge needs money to be able to maintain and repair the microbus, and in this way, to be able to continue working, increase his income, and improve the quality of life for his family.
