Humberto's story

Humberto is a very hard-working man. He lives with his partner in the zone of Achachicala, which is located in the city of La Paz. He spends most of his time operating cash registers in a supermarket. He studies at night in order to advance academically and thereby obtain a more profitable job so his earnings increase and so he will be able to look after his family. His wife works as a pharmacist in charge in the same area. She works all day from 8:30am to 7:00pm. Humberto needs the loan in order to pay the expenses for his computing studies so he can advance academically and be able to apply for a better role or job, have greater earnings, and deal with the household expenses. Humberto’s dream is to be able to have greater earnings because of the sacrifice his family is making, and be able to have a peaceful old age. He hopes to rely on a pension which will allow him to improve his quality of life.
