A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a plot of land.

Orlando's story

Orlando, age 29, lives in Chimoré in the Carrasco province in the city of Cochabamba. He is single, and his source of income is from Sindicato Alto San José, which is 15 kilometers from Chimoré.

He used to work as a day worker with yucca production, but he did not have sufficient income to be able to buy a plot of urban land. Orlando and his parents pulled themselves up again and started anew from zero.

The loan that Orlando is requesting is to buy an urban plot of land. He will then build his house there. This way he will be able to have a better life. He was not able to finish studying for a career. However, he wants his children to be able to have a career and to be able to help the people in the area.
