Gustavo's story

Gustavo is 26 years old. He lives in the town of Chimore, in Cochabamba. Gustavo works hauling bananas and providing a moto-taxi service. Two years ago, he was living with his parents in the town of Senda F; however, because he didn't have enough income to take care of his family, he had to move to the town of Chimore. Upon moving to that town, Gustavo and his wife began to lift themselves up economically again as his path took a new direction. The loan that Gustavo is requesting is for the purchase of a motorcycle for his moto-taxi service; that way, he will have better income for his own living conditions and be able to help his family.
