A loan of $1,450 helped to improve and expand his four-room home.


Lucio's story

Lucio is married and has 8 independent children. He lives in his own home, occupying four rooms. The home is in El Alto. He receives a pension and also works, providing food services at a bridge club. He works over eight hours a day and uses his meagre income to cover his and his wife's food costs and bills. He will invest this loan in paying labourers to work on his home, because he wants to have more comfort and security. His dream is to finish construction and open businesses or stores in order to improve his income; this is his old age, and his current work is very demanding. For this reason, he wants to have a business in his own home.
