A loan of $600 helped to buy work tools..


Limbert Ronald's story

Limbert, who comes from Cochabamba, is a very hardworking young man. Besides breeding cows and bulls, he also works as a master plumber. He offers his services on a casual basis and he must travel several kilometers every day to arrive at his job destination. He currently lives with his parents. Every one in the family works to help provide for basic necessities.

Limbert is very grateful for having access to this loan, which is an opportunity to have his own tools for his job as a plumber. In this way he will be able to generate more income which will help him to have a better quality of life. Among his future plans, Limbert is planning to take out a new loan for an "anticrético" arrangement [a housing arrangement in which the owner leases property for a specified time in exchange for one lump-sum "loan" payment that is repaid interest-free at the end of the agreement] and so as to have a larger plumbing business where he can provide better service for all his customers.
