Leonardo's story

Leonardo works in the public transport service and lives with his daughter in his own house, made out of adobe with a cement floor, in the Pasankeri area of the city of La Paz. He works more than eight hours a day since he is the only income earner in the family.

Leonardo is in need of a loan to pay for maintenance on his work vehicle so he can continue working to maintain his income or even try to improve it.

Leonardo's dream is to build a house someday.
