A loan of $1,200 helped to buy agricultural products.

Simon's story

Mr. Simón R. T. is 46 years old and has been married to Mrs. Leónidas Hinojosa Morales de R. for over 9 years. Together they have 3 underage children, and live in the Aguirre area that is located 42 km from the city of Cochabamba.

Mr. Simón is a farmer and grows potatoes and haba beans, he also goes to Yapacani and takes his agricultural products to sell with his wife. He is a very humble but hardworking person, Mr. Simón needs the money to buy items for his crops such as organic manure and potato seeds, it is very difficult to go the banks in the city since they have too many requirements which is why he chose to take the initiative to go to that area and get the loan. Mr. Simón is very happy to have received the loan and he will now be able to buy his agricultural products so that he can have more income to send his 3 underage children to school and to improve the home which he inhabits.
