Julio's story

Julio N. lives in the zone of Pasankeri, on the western side of the city of La Paz. He lives in his own home with his wife Maria Laura and their two daughters. Julio is retired from the teaching profession, and his wife works as an assistant in private construction.

With previous loans, Julio was able to build a foundation of reinforced concrete and two well-finished rooms. This loan is to completely finish the two rooms (painting, electrical wiring and plugs etc.), located on the ground floor of the house.

This is the twelfth time that he has sought a loan, and the socioeconomic analysis classified him favourably as eligible for a new loan.
