A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a land title and finish construction on his home.

Juan's story

Juan is 28 years old. He is married and has three children. His main economic activity is cargo transport. He travels to the tropical area of Cochabamba and the whole country. He has 8 years of experience, but since the income he earns isn’t enough to cover his expenses, he makes cement wash basins on the weekends. His wife takes care of their cattle. Since the time he was very young, he has had to work to get ahead and buy a lot for his house, with the goal of continuing to get ahead and to provide better benefits for his family. He is requesting a loan to finish the construction of his house, which he could not finish because he did not have the necessary funds. This is how he will provide improved comfort and well-being for his family.
