Martin has lived with his partner Flora Villarroel López for over 12 years and they have four children together, all of whom study and are dependent on them financially. They have lived in the community of Segunda Candelaria for the last 11 years.
Martin is a builder, bricklayer and a farmer. To support his family he grows potatoes and broad beans and raises geese and livestock which he uses for farm work.
Martin came to apply for a loan in person since it is very far for him to go to financial organisations in Cochabamba. He plans to purchase agricultural supplies such as organic fertiliser (chicken manure) and potato and broad bean seeds to increase his agricultural production. He tells us that he has always made sure that his children never went without and he hopes that they will have a better life than him in the future.
