Manuel, 23, is single and lives with his parents and siblings. They used to live in the department of Chuquisaca in the community of Yamparaez about 23 years ago, but they had to come to Santa Rosa Ñ, in the province of Tiraque in the department of Cochabamba, where they've lived for 20 years.

Manuel works as a day laborer doing the slash-and-burn preparation of land on rice, banana, and yucca farms. He and his father lifted themselves up and set out on a new path, starting from scratch.

The loan that Manuel is requesting is to buy a plot of land to farm so he'll be able to have more income and help his father and mother.
