A loan of $600 helped to build two new rooms on his property.


Lino's story

Lino C. lives in a rented house in the zone of "las Delicias" ["the Delights"], a hill north of the city of La Paz. He lives with his wife, Elizabeth Valdez.

Lino works as a food critic, attending in particular social gatherings. His wife is a housewife. With his savings, Lino was able to buy a plot of land in the city of El Alto, a city to the west of La Paz.

The loan that Lino is requesting is for the contruction of two new rooms on his property. This is the first time that he has asked for a loan. The socioeconomic analysis that was performed favorably qualified him so that he can access credit.
