Pablo
Pablo is a 48 year old farmer who is married and lives in Sololá. He has two sons. They study in a school in the community and help out in the field in their free time.

He makes a living in agriculture, growing onions, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, radish and flowers in plots of land just a few meters from his home. He learned this from his father when he was only in primary school as he also supported his father in the field of agriculture.

He has now been doing his own cultivation for 15 years making good money watching the vegetables grow. He requests a loan of Q 9,000.00 so that he can buy potato seeds and fertilizer to later grow and harvest, improving their income and living conditions and expanding their farming.

In the future, he wants to have a tree nursery and reforest an area that is supporting the environment of the community.
