A loan of $600 helped to plant yucca.

Donato's story

Donato is a farmer. He was born in the community of Pérez in the department of Cochabamba. He is 51 years old and at this time is separated from his wife. He lives with his oldest son, who is 29 years old. Both of them are farmers, planting corn, vegetables and yucca. They also raise cattle with which they produce cheese with the milk. This is his first loan that he has asked for from the institution. Donato is very grateful for the support that has been offered since it has allowed him to grow financially. He will use the money from the loan to plant yucca and to prepare the land. With his son's help, Donato will sell the products in the local market, directly from the producer to the consumer.
