A loan of $1,500 helped to build a shed.

Jhylmar Freddy's story

Sr. Jhylmar is 27 years old. He is single and does not have dependent children, however he lives with his brother, who is still school-aged. He lives in the northern part of Cochabamba in the province of Cercado.

Jhylmar has been steadfast in his goals. Despite the fact that he had to sacrifice a lot and pay for his studies himself without help from his father, who died 12 years ago, he managed to graduate from a course in Civil Engineering at the Universidad Mayor de San Simón. Now he works as an engineer for a water well drilling company in the city of Cochabamba.

The reason he wants the present loan is to build a shed so that he can have extra income because the shed will be rented to a carpenter.. Thus he can continue helping his brother to finish school and he can do so without leaving his own profession aside.
