A loan of $1,200 helped buy shares in a water well for irrigation.

Sergio's story

Sergio S. is 28 years old and lives in the Malico Rancho - Sipe Sipe region in the province of Quillacollo in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

S. is a very simple, humble man. He studied through his bachelor's degree but could not continue his studies because of his economic situation; he is single and he hopes to improve his financial situation in the future.

He works in agriculture and as a construction assistant.

He does not produce a lot of crops because he doesn't have enough water to irrigate his plants. This is why he has looked for other work to support himself.

He still cultivates his crops each year but he would like to change this situation by assuring himself of enough water to irrigate his plants.

This is why he is seeking a loan to buy shares of a water well which will allow him to irrigate his plants and improve his income.
