Samuel's story

Samuel M. sells music videos, movies on DVD and VCD in the evenings on Tihuanaku Avenue in the city of El Alto. He also works as a taxi driver during the day. He employs two people at his market stall. His income allows him to support his 75 year-old mother and his 12 year-old son. He lives in the Villa Tunari-Rio Seco zone of the city of El Alto.

The loan will be used to buy inventory, which will allow him to meet the demand for his products. Because of his good credit history, it is possible for him to take out a new loan in order to strengthen his commercial activities and thereby improve his income.
