Eduardo Martin's story

Eduardo is 32 years old and lives in the Sopocachi zone of the city of La Paz. He is single and lives with his younger brother and his parents who are advancing in age. Eduardo began to work as a taxi driver five years ago and he generally works at night because it allows him to continue his advanced studies in Psychology. Thanks to his dedication and hard work, this job has helped him generate income to be able to live, but her also counts on a second job selling sweaters, shirts, and t-shirts that he brings from the Desaguadero river region. He wants to get ahead in order to improve his quality of life. Eduardo helps with the household expenses and he needs this loan in order to purchase merchandise for his second job, particularly because there is great demand during the holiday season. His main dream is to be able to work in his field, to get his taxi to work and to obtain the rent. He also dreams of owning his own home and having a family. He has two jobs - he is a taxi driver but also sells clothes.
