Fernando's story

Fernando is 19 years old. He lives in the community of Chimore in the province of Carrasco, municipality of Chimore, city of Cochabamba. Fernando works as a mechanic for motorcycle taxis and selling replacement parts in a area called Florida, on Calle Panamericana. Fernando used to live in the community of Senda F and about two years ago he had to come to Chimore because he didn't make enough income to support his family. Fernando left his parents when he came to live in Chimore, where with his wife he started a new life from zero. The loan Fernando is asking for is to buy a city lot and thus help his family.
