Rene's story

René is married and has two school-aged children. The family lives in a house that they own. It has two rooms, walls made of brick, and a floor that is just earth. The house is in the Alto San Pedro area of La Paz city. René is currently employed at a private business where he works eight hours per day. This is one income that the family has to pay for the children's education, food and other costs. René also has a small grocery store. René needs this loan in order to increase merchandise in his shop and buy products in bulk. With this loan he can increase his income. René's dream is to build a house so that his family may live more comfortably, and to improve their quality of life.
