Juan is 37. He received his high school diploma, but didn't go on to attend university. He is married to Nora, whom he lives with. They have three daughters, who study at a local public school at the primary level.

Currently their economic situation is stable. This is thanks to the fact that in previous years the husband travelled to Argentina to work, in order to better his income and save. Once he returned, his savings were earmarked for the purchase of cattle.

Currently, the family lives in Cochabamba, and they all work together in the business of milk production. Juan works with the desire to improve his situation in order to offer his family a better life.

The loan he is requesting is to buy corn husks for feeding the cattle, due to the fact that he received an offer from his neighbor to purchase these.
