José is 53 years old and is a friendly, hardworking person who for 38 years has been farming in the La Huerta community, located 95 km from Tarija, in the Arce province. He currently lives and works there with his family. He’s married and has two adult children on their own.

This past season was very difficult and he didn’t have the production he normally has because of the weather. He needs resources to buy potato seeds because it’s the greatest production he has during the year. He wants to increase his production so that he can come out ahead with his family because rural life is very complex and difficult. Jose is certain that his situation will improve with this loan. This loan is so that he can buy a vehicle that he needs to transport his products to the local market.
