Rufino's story

Rufino is 53 years old. He is married to Epifanía and they have one dependent child who is in school. The family lives north of Colomi. He earns his living in agriculture, producing potato, oca, and papaliza [Andean tuber vegetables] cultivating a field that he inherited from his parents where he rotates his crops. Through this, he is able to support his family. He is now in need of a loan for the purchase of agricultural inputs for planting the next year's crop. It may help his son in his studies so that he can have a better future and also so Rufino can have a better income to provide his family to achieve greater well-being.
