A loan of $1,500 helped to pay for taxi bodywork.

Linver's story

Linver is 29 years old. He is single and has one child whom he supports. A few months ago, he separated from his partner. He lives in his mother’s home in the Abra region of the city of Cochabamba.

Linver has succeeded in getting a college degree, but due to the high unemployment that exists in Bolivia, he cannot find work in this profession. Therefore, he has to work in the taxi service. Thanks to his savings, he has been able to buy a vehicle, which he works with.

The purpose of the loan is to do some bodywork on his taxi, since the paint deteriorated with the passing of the years, and he needs to keep his taxi presentable in order to continue working, and in this way, support his small child.

Among his dreams and goals are to be able to someday work in his career in order to start his studies again, and to have a better quality of life.
