Luis's story

Luis was born on August 28,1968 in the town of Dami Rancho, in Tiraque Province of Cochabamba. He currently lives with his family in Dami Rancho in a small rustic home. He is a farmer, growing root and cereal crops in seasonal production. His entire family helps him plant and harvest, even his children get involved. Sometimes he also contracts help from his neighbors, paying them daily wages in a traditional form of mutual help called "ayni".
He plans to use this loan to buy potato seed and chicken fertilizer for this year's planting. He wants to buy these products soon before the prices rise.
