Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is a 35 year old, single man who is the father of one child. He works in photography, filming and making sound tracks at social events. He is a responsible person, punctual, attentive, meticulous, hard-working and very caring for his son. His office is located in the ‘Villa Fátima’ area of the city of La Paz. This area is known for the informal bus stations that go to other departments like Los Yungas, Beni and Pando.

Miguel is dark-skinned, close-cropped hair and medium stature. His working days are most usually on week-ends when all types of social events are held: weddings, fifteenth birthdays, children's birthday parties, etc. In his work he uses all types of digital equipment to capture and edit the images and sound like cameras, video, microphones, lights etc.

Miguel does not have all the equipment he needs for this work so he has to rent a good part of them which reduces his economic gains. He wants to invest in the purchase of two sound speakers for his sound work. His dream is to have an events business and undertake large events. For these reasons Miguel is requesting a loan to buy two speakers and with the benefits he can pay the expenses of his son.
