Jorge has been single for years and has lived in the Cochabamba tropics in Puerto Flores Syndicate in the Entre Ríos Municipality for 11 years. He’s from Chapare Province in Cochabamba Department, one of the poorest parts of Bolivia. He came from his community of Chaqueli Carrasco like most people seeking better life opportunities. Production dropped in his community due to weather changes that were hard to control; production dropped more each time and became scarce which is why he decided to move to the tropics. With time and much effort and hard work, he was able to buy his parcel of farmland and he now works in the agricultural sector. The loan he’s asking for is for banana crop maintenance so that he can improve his standard of living; he’s also always cooperated with his syndicate in doing the common work the syndicate does.
