A loan of $1,500 helped to buy agricultural products such as potato seeds.


Agustino's story

Agustino has been married to Nicasia for 7 years. Both of them have a primary school education and they live the rural area of Comunidad Aguirre "2", south of the town of Colomi. They have 3 dependent children, 2 of which are in school. Agustin works in transportation service with his own vehicle. He is affiliated with the Autotransportes Aguirre union with the Aguirre-Cbba-Sacaba route. They are also farmers who grow on land they inherited from their parents. They rotate potato crops. Mostly his wife does this, apart from caring for the children and getting them to school. In this way, they support themselves. They tell us they just built their little house and invested all of the savings that they had, so they didn't have the money to buy the agricultural materials (potato seeds). They tell us they are going to be able to plant a lot more easily because they have the land parcels ready for the planting.
