Eugenio and his wife, Dominga, are 41 and 36 respectively, and have been living together for over 10 years. They are economically independent and both work in agriculture. Eugenio sows a plot of 5 hectares, land which was passed down from his parents. He has experience of growing potatoes, "papalizas" (a sort of tuber) and beans, which he crop-rotates. In addition, he has some cattle: 4 animals for fattening and 3 dairy cows.
He currently needs a loan to buy cows (1 pair), since he invested his savings into buying fattening animals and dairy cows. This would be good opportunity to increase his assets.
