Osvaldo's story

Osvaldo, 33, lives in a common-law marriage and has two children, ages 6 and 2. He's a very respectful and hardworking person. Currently he and his family live in the community of Shinahota and rent a small house.

Osvaldo has worked for five years in the field of transportation. He has his own vehicle with which he offers services in the same town. In addition, two years ago he bought an FM radio with which he also works, receiving contracts for programs or announcements. His wife contributes income by selling yuca that she takes to the city of Cochabamba.

A few years ago he bought a plot of land in the same community that's already under construction, but he hasn't managed to finish because of the costs.

Currently he's requesting a small loan to be able to finish construction and live more peacefully with his family in his own house.
