Victoriano
Victoriano is a farmer of 37 years of age. He has a simple relationship with his wife and he lives in Sololá. He has three sons studying in a community school and they help him in the field in their free time.

He works growing onions and potatoes on plots that he has a few meters from his house. He learned from his father when he was little because he helped out in the fields and it was his first job.

He has spent 15 years farming on his own and being independent and seeing that he is getting good earnings, he is growing these vegetables. He is asking for a loan of 4,000 quetzales so he can buy potato seeds and fertilizer for cultivating and harvesting to improve the family income.

His dream is to expand his cultivation to other farmlands and to provide his children an education to improve the conditions of life for all his family.
