Señor José is from the province of Punata in the department of Cochabamba. He works in his activities of raising chickens (poultry) and producing fruiting plants such as apples and peaches, raised on his own parcels of land. He lives alone. His children are adults and are already independent of his family. He is now applying for a loan to buy agricultural supplies to apply to the fruiting plants and to hire labor.
He has his own home. It is an ordinary house, made by himself with local materials. He does not have energy service; he simply has a solar panel. The water that he uses is sanitized and is shared in the community. He has a great will to advance with his work; for this reason he is applying for the loan to continue with his work and in the future improve his living conditions.
