Sr. Octavio was born in Chuquisaca. He lives with Doña Felicia and their two sons who are neither studying nor working. Octavio is a farmer and rancher. He works hard growing corn and peanuts since these are the most profitable crops. Octavio sells his crops directly from his land so that he does not have to pay shipping costs. He is an extremely hard worker.

The loan he is requesting will be used to prepare his land for growing the products he sells. Octavio also raises and fattens animals to sell at the local market. He is very grateful to Emprender for the support that has been provided.
