A loan of $1,450 helped pay for general repairs on his passenger bus that serves the city of La Paz.


Sergio's story

Sergio is a hard-working man who lives in his own house in the Pasankeri zone located in the city of La Paz. He dedicates himself principally to conducting his own bus, which is affiliated with one of the driver syndicates in the city of La Paz. His spouse is a house wife. Sergio begins his activities at 6:00 am and finishes at 10:00 pm, driving in the city's central zone. He needs the loan to be able to restore his bus to good condition, since he has had problems with the motor. This will bring in a higher income and allow him to offer his passengers better service. His bus needs a general check up and maintenance to improve its mobility. Sergio's dream is to be able to have a higher income for the sacrifice he makes and to enjoy a more tranquil old age. He hopes he can count on a salary in old age that will permit him to experience a better quality of life.
