Cresencio's story

Cresencio comes from the community of San Isidro Alto, approximately 8 km east of Tiraque. He currently lives in the community with his family, who are dependent on him. The house where they live is constructed of clay with a rustic-type tile roof. The work to which he dedicates himself is agriculture, producing potatoes, beans and grains. At the same time, he also works as a mason. The agricultural crops are produced on lands passed down from his father, who is currently living with his wife. The borrower will use the loan he is requesting for agricultural supplies, so that he can increase his production for the year. In this way, he will increase his income to support his family economically. In the area where he lives, crops are produced seasonally. He notes that he harvests his crops twice a year, and that he carries out his agricultural work together with his children, and in some cases with the help of his neighbors.
