A loan of $1,500 helped to make repairs to his home.

Roberto's story

Roberto is 23 years old and lives with his partner. He has 2 children who he feeds and cares for, and supports in their education. Roberto only received elementary school education due to his parents' limited economic means and therefore was unable to complete higher education. After leaving school, he began working, harvesting citrus fruit, pineapple, bananas, etc. This is were he met his partner, when they were both young.

Currently, Roberto works as a moto-taxi driver. With his savings, he has purchased an urban lot in the same area where his house is, which he bought 4 years ago. However, in the tropical climate of Cochabamba, buildings don't last long due to the rains, and so Roberto is requesting a loan to make repairs to his house, which will allow him to give his family a good quality and long-lasting home, and improve their quality of life.
