A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase organic fertilizer.

Hilario's story

Hilario R. C. is 61 years old and he has been married with Felipa Miranda Ledezma for 15 years. They have lived in the community of Primara Canderlaria for 23 years, located north of Colomi. They have 6 children who are dependents and they are in grade school and in high school.

Hilario and his wife are agriculturists and they also raise cattle. They need the loan to purchase organic fertilizer (chicken fertilizer) and to purchase potatoes seedlings, with the goal of increasing production. This year the products have become more expensive and to pay for the high school and professional training for his children. He wants to give them a better future and it is the reason for the initiative he took to go the region to request a loan.

Hilario says that requesting loans from other financial institutions requires him to travel very far, to the city of Cochabamba, and they have a great many requisites.
