Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is a 26-year-old, unmarried man who lives with his partner. He was able to study humanities in high school. He has a young son that he provides for who lives with his father-in-law in the town of Tíraque, 65 km away from Cochabamba. Juan Carlos and his wife work producing raw milk from cows. He states that he delivers the milk to the Association of Milk Producers of Tíraque, who then deliver it to the milk processing plant ILVA. At the same time, Juan Carlos has a second job working in transportation, transporting passengers in his own vehicle on Fridays and Sundays. He offers his services in the 15 de Octubre zone, transporting customers from the town of Tíraque to Cochabamba and viceversa. Finally, Juan Carlos and his wife state that they want to progress in life. For this reason, they believe that they need to ask for a loan to buy a milk cow that will let them obtain additional income.
