Silverio's story

Silverio is 38 years old and lives in the Macia zone. He has two school aged children and lives with his wife, Primitiva. He works in various departments in Bolivia, for a factory that provides gas line installation services. They are very hardworking people who were able to grow, and improve their children’s living conditions a bit with the help of the previous loan, which they used to buy a gas system. They were able to sell the vehicle at a good price and were able to pay for a plot of land in Maica. Now they are building a home, by their own labor, little by little. Now that they have a home and kitchen, they want to complete the part of the house for their children, because they are currently all living in a single room. In this way they can improve their living conditions.
