A loan of $1,475 helped to buy supplies to grow pineapples.

Dionicio's story

Dionicio is 48 years old and come from Potosí. He only studied until second grade of elementary school, because his parents could not afford to support him to continue his studies. A year later, his mother passed away due to a serious illness, and when he was eight years old, he began working independently to be able to pay the family’s expenses because he is the eldest son.

He is now married to Macaria and they have five children, whom they both help and support in their schooling. They live 25 km from the town of Ivirgarzama in the San Benito-Tamborada community. They have a small plot of land that they use to grow pineapples which they sell at the local market. Now Dionicio wants to expand his crops, and this is why he is requesting a loan. The loan will help him to generate more income and thus improve his quality of life.
