Cornelio's story

Cornelio is 25 years old and lives in the town of Tiraque. He lives with his wife and has 2 children. Cornelio works as a driver for an automobile transporting syndicate in Tiraque community. He used to live in a different community but 5 years ago, he had to move to Tiraque due to his insufficient income. He left everything behind and came with his wife to Tiraque. They began to advance themselves and gave a new direction to their lives, starting at zero. Now he has mobility and an urban lot and, at the same time, works as a driver.

The loan Cornelio is requesting is to begin a business buying and selling new clothes. In this manner, he will be able to earn more income and help his children finish school. Cornelio dreams of a better future for his children, since he himself couldn't finish school or pursue a career. He wants his children to be able to achieve a career and to be able to help people who reside in their zone.
