Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos and his wife live with their small daughter in two rooms. One they use as a bedroom for all three of them and the other is their kitchen and small living room. There is a small adjoined bathroom. It is located in the area of Las Lomas in La Paz. Juan Carlos is a shop assistant who works along with his wife in a printing shop. He gets a monthly salary. his wife is paid by piecework. They work in the collating and printing department of the printing shop.

Juan Carlos also provides transportation services with his vehicle in order to pay the household expenses they have. Juan Carlos needs the loan in order to make repairs to his unit (changing the brakes and fluids and tuning up the motor) so as not to lose the income that the vehicle brings in.

Juan Carlos' dream is to have enough income to buy a small house and in this way provide more stability for his family.
