Mariano's story

Mariano is a young 23-year-old man. He is married and lives together with his wife in the region of Chichicastenango. Mariano works as a day labourer, doing various jobs in order to earn enough money to allow his family to get by. He has been doing this for ten years and like many youngsters he could not have a full education because of his financial situation.

Marino now owns a plot of land where he wants to grow broccoli. For this reason he is asking for a loan to buy broccoli seeds and fertiliser. With this investment he will improve his income. His greatest dream in life is to build his own house in order to provide his family with better living conditions.
