A loan of $625 helped to pay for study tools for his university course in mechanics.


Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is 24 years old and single. He is studying mechanics at a well-known university in the city of La Paz. He is working making clothes, such as sport clothes, in order to pay his studies. He has a workshop in the 16 de Julio area of the city of El Alto. This is Miguel's first loan with the institution and he will use it to cover various costs related to his studies, such as tuition fees, materials and tools to finish his five-year study programme. Miguel is facing challenges in his studies - because of his work, he is not able to dedicate himself 100% to his university work. However, this young man has the will to keep going and to get ahead. When he finishes his studies, Miguel wants to practice what he has learned at university and improve his and his family's quality of life.
