Julian's story

Sr. Julian is 45 years old and has been in a common-law relationship with Sra. Cirila for 23 years. They have three children, one of whom is disabled. Julian and his family live in the nearby community of Candelaria, which is 15 kilometers north of Colomi. He engages in farming activities and earns yearly income by selling seasonal products such as potatoes, oca, ulluco, and beans. His crops are grown on two plots of land, one that measures five hectares and another that measures three hectares, which he inherited from his parents.

Don Julian and his wife have a son who is disabled. Throughout the year, they must pay for expenses related to his hospital treatments and other services. For this reason, they need a loan in order to buy organic compost and potato seedlings. The planting season has arrived and they are in urgent need of these supplies. Sr. Julian is encouraged by the idea of being able to contribute to the welfare of his family by increasing their income, especially for the purpose of paying his son’s medical expenses.
