A loan of $1,450 helped to buy farm land.

Silverio's story

Silverio is 29 years old and has lived with Isabal for six years. They have two dependent children. The whole family works in agriculture and it is their source of income. They produce potatoes and peppers using crop rotation, growing on 2.1 hectares of land in the community of Corani Pampa Duraznos. Silverio has a lot of experience in agriculture. They are 82 kilometers from the city of Cochabamba. Silverio and his wife told us that they need the money to purchase farm land next to their parcel that is being urgently sold. They spent the savings they had on a parabolic antenna for television and a motorcycle that they really needed. Silverio is a young and enterprising person. He tells us that with the loan, he will buy the land and increase his agricultural production so that they have a better income and guarantee food security for the family.
