Alberto's story

Alfredo is a 30-year-old, single person. However, he does live with someone. He managed to finish elementary school and lives in his own house. He has four economic dependents. He and his family’s main occupation is farming. They produce potato, broad beans and peas on their own fields located in the community of Kañacota in the community of Tíraque about 75 kilometers from the city of Cochabamba.

He and his wife state that they would like to increase potato production and to do so they needed to request a loan to have funds to invest in the purchase of seeds and fowl guano, the main organic fertilizer used in this zone to improve tuber production and thus to improve his family’s living conditions.
