Severo's story

Severo, 49, is married and completed elementary school. He lives in his own house and has three economic dependents in his care, his children. His and his family’s economic activity is agriculture. They grow potatoes, lima beans, peas and carrots on their own land located in the community of Pairumani in Tíraque Municipality which a distance from the city of Cochabamba located along the old Santa Cruz highway at about the 90 kilometer marker.

Both Severo and his wife state that they’d like to increase the size of their cattle herd and to do so they need to request investment funds to buy them so that in the medium-run they will be able to earn additional income when they sell the cattle.
