A loan of $1,450 helped build a home.

Nicolas's story

Mr. Nicolás is 54 years old; he lives with his 4 children as his wife left him 13 years ago. Mr. Nicolás and his children are farmers, they grow potatoes, ulloco, and oca in 2.8 hectares of land since it is an inheritance from his parents and he has a lot of experience in the field. The place is located in the Kuri mayu community, some 75 km. from the city of Cochabamba. Mr. Nicolás says that his children would like to live in a comfortable home, where they live now is rustic and they need money. The loan will be used to build a home; his savings were used for agricultural products because this year with his children they planted more potatoes. Mr. Nicolás’ dream is to give his children a dignified life, an education and a comfortable home, the area where they live in has no necessary infrastructure.
