A loan of $725 helped to buy organic fertilizer and potato seed.

Humberto's story

Humberto is 32 years old, single and currently lives with his parents, but economically he is independent. He earns a living farming two hectares of land, which is his inheritance from his parents. He produces potatoes, olluco [a type of tuber] and broad beans, with crop rotation. He has a lot of experience in this field. The community of First Toncoli is 51 km from the city of Cochabamba.

Humberto comments that he urgently needs money to buy potato seed and organic fertilizer as his land is already prepared for planting for this season. This will ensure that they have enough to eat.

The savings he had was spent on the construction of his house. Humberto is an entrepreneurial person and his dream is to have his own home.
