Roberto lives in Porvenir located 40 kilometers from El Torno. He was born in Sucre, capital of Bolivia. He is a farmer. His wife cares for their two young children. They don’t own their own home but live in a rented abode. They own a lot where they will soon build a wood house.
The loan will be used to hire laborers to prepare the soil for corn planting which is the family’s only source of income since this activity supports the home.
He is very grateful for the help the institution has provided.
