A loan of $1,500 helped to pay housing expenses.


Edgar Victor's story

Sr. Edgar, 39, is married and lives in a southern neighborhood of Cochabamba. He has three children, at home, all three of whom study in fee-based schools. Sr. Edgar was unable to go on to college from high school because his parents needed him to work and help support the family. He has always worked and now has his own taxi business. His income doesn't stretch to meet all the family's expenses, though, and his wife has a business of her own, making clothing for teens and adults. Sr. Edgar is applying for a loan that he will use to finish building his house. He doesn't have the funds to complete it now and he wants to provide his family with a decent place to live.
