A loan of $1,500 helped to expand and maintain his pineapple crop.

Victor's story

Sr. Victor lives in the neighborhood of Rumi Tambo, which is in Carrasco Province in the Department of Cochabamba. The town is situated among some rivers. Victor is currently in a common-law relationship and has four children. He owns land that he acquired with great effort during the colonization period.

Victor produces pineapple, rice, and other products on a smaller scale for family consumption. His average annual sales include 18,000 units of pineapple grown on one hectare of land and 25 quintales (1 quintal = 100 kilograms) of rice that is grown on another hectare of land. Whatever he produces is sold from his farm or at the nearby market. This business activity has a regular season that lasts throughout the year.

The loan he is currently requesting will be used to expand and maintain his pineapple crop, which produces sufficient output to generate a good income. Victor’s resources are not sufficient to carry out all of his activities, so this current loan will expand and maintain his pineapple production. As a result, he can grow as a farmer.
