Osbaldo lives in the township of Puerto Ichilo, which belongs to the department of Cochambamba in the province of Carrasco and in the municipality of Entre Rios. He currently lives with his brother, is single, and does not have any children. He is very dedicated to his economic activity, and he is a very good worker in the area.
He grows pineapple and rice. He has an annual average harvest of 10,000 units of pineapple (from 1/2 hectare of land) and 37 quintals (about 3,700 lbs) of rice (from 1 1/2 hectares of land). He sells his products in the same area where he grows them, and he sells to intermediaries that come to buy his products.
Osbaldo wants to grow his production and business; this is the reason that he is requesting a loan in order to buy a plot of land. In this way, he will have greater land available to him in order to grow his production.
