Ricardo Raul's story

Ricardo is 42 years old. He lives with Bertha. He has lived with her for more than 14 years. They have 4 dependent children who are in primary and secondary school at the moment. They go to public schools as the family does not have sufficient income to pay for private school.

Ricardo completed his primary school studies. However, because of the bad influence of his friends and because his parents did not give him a lot of advice he did not finish secondary school. In fact he started to work at a young age, doing different kinds of work. Approximately one year ago he lived in the Santa Cruz region but the cost of living is very high there, so he decided to move to the Cochabamba area. This is where he lives at present. At the moment Ricardo works as a trailer truck driver.

The loan requested is for the construction of bedrooms for his children, which will improve his family’s quality of life.
