A loan of $1,000 helped to buy machinery for his workshop.


Luis's story

Luis, is single and has no children. He lives in his one-room, brick-walled house, located in Alto Miraflores in the city of La Paz. He works more than 10 hours a day in his shop making aluminum windows, and the little income he earns has to cover his food and basic service costs.

He needs a loan to buy a machine that will be very useful in his shop, as he cannot afford to pay for it from his earnings. Luis dreams of building more rooms so that his house will be more comfortable and safer and he will have a higher standard of living.
