He lives and works in Colomi-Cochabamba. He is economically independent. He is hardworking, responsible and enterprising to maintain a stable, economic activity. He is single. He has one son who is three weeks old. His birth was complicated by serious heart problems. Doctors had to do surgery (cardiac catheterization) to save the life of his son.They are not living with the son’s mother due to some family problems but he has to take over the expenses. He does not have money to pay for the expenses. He is from a poor family. He has been dedicated to farming from a young age. He has a lot of experience. He grows potatoes, corn, and onions as his main, high demand products at the market. The plot where he works was an inheritance from his parents, with an extension of approximately 2.5 hectares.
The gentleman requires the loan urgently to pay off the medical expenses of his son. He has nowhere else to obtain it.
