Narciso Jose's story

Narciso was born in Cochabamba and has five children who go to school and work with their father. He lives with Feliciana, who was also born in Cochabamba. Ten years ago, they came here looking for a better future, and they found it.

He has his land in Villa Barrientos, 16 km from Santa Rita. He has a 10-hectare plot, and he farms it, but they also work in ranching and making charcoal. He also has land in Beni that he works. They will use the loan money to buy seeds for sowing corn.

They are a very close family and work together for their well-being. Narciso is a very hard-working person, and he is grateful to the institution for the support he has been offered.
