A loan of $1,500 helped to buy an urban lot.

Michael's story

Michael, 20, was born in Carrasco Province. He completed school with much effort working and studying at the same time. Despite difficulties, when he graduated from school he went to the city of Santa Cruz seeking employment. Michael worked for about a year in various activities and he currently lives in Cochabamba working with his uncle making cement crafts. He makes decorative items for the home like flower pots, cement statues and water fountains. Michael learned to make cement crafts easily and he’s currently still in this line of work. He earns by the finished item.

Michael has been seeking ways to improve his quality of life these past few years with a dwelling of his own to live in and this is why he’s requesting the loan to buy an urban lot in the community of Paraíso with the intention of building his own house in the future.
