Víctor
Víctor, 43, is married and lives in the community of Chuimanzana in El Tablón Canton, Sololá, with his wife and six children. The oldest two are women who work on their own; the other four are minors who attend school in the community.

Víctor's a farmer and a hardworking man who's prepared to get ahead with his family by working hard in agriculture. He makes a living growing onions in a town near his home where he can harvest his vegetables better and get good prices when it's time to sell. He learned this job with his parents when he left school after the third year of elementary school. Now, for 20 years he has been growing this type of vegetable with his wife and children to have more income and support his family.

Now Víctor's requesting a loan for 3,000 quetzales [GTQ] because it's the season when the prices of some vegetables improve. He's going to buy onion seeds and organic soil amendments so he can grow, harvest, and sell his crop in the local market and in other departments.

Víctor dreams of remodeling his home and giving his children clothing so he can improve his family's standard of living.
