Mr. Mirael Ríos M., 40, together with his four children and wife are farmers. They live in Molle Aguada Alta, Mizque province, Cochabamba department. Due to the remoteness of the town and the arid conditions of the soil he cannot farm continuously and has only one crop per year.

Mirael and his entire family tried to seek better lives in town and in the city but due to his health he wasn’t able to withstand any of the places he attempted to live. He has hypertension and diabetes so he had to return to Molle Aguada Alta.

But he worries about his children because they are growing up in the wilderness far away from schools and because of the poverty in which they live they can’t afford to leave their children in town to go to school.

With the requested loan they hope to improve production. They want to buy more seed and manure to improve and increase production thus increasing income which will lead to a better life for the entire family.
