A loan of $725 helped to buy a water irrigation system.

Rene's story

Rene is from the Chaqui Kocha community, 10 km north of Tiraque. He currently lives in the community and is in charge of his four children. The house where he lives is built of mud with a tile roof, the rustic style.

He is engaged with agriculture, producing potatoes, beans, and cereals. All these products are produced in the land he inherited form his father. He currently lives with his wife.

The loan he is requesting is to buy a water irrigation system to irrigate and thus increase the annual production. Doing so, he will improve his income to support his family.

In the area where he lives, there's some seasonality. He states that harvest is only once a year. The agricultural work is done with his children and sometimes with the help of his neighbors.
