Efrain's story

Mr. Efrain is 29 years old and single. He lives in a rural community, 1st Toncoli, north of Colomi. He finished primary school. Efrain is a young and very responsible person with his obligations and activities, according to his neighbors. He works in agriculture during the year, his income comes from selling potato and oca [Oxalis tuberosa] and he also helps in this way his nephews, which have limited economic resources.

Young Efrain mentions that he just got the finishing work in his house done, in which he invested all his savings, and he is lacking money to buy agricultural supplies. Now that he has parcels ready for sowing, he needs help to buy organic fertilizer (chicken manure) and potato seeds.

Finally, he is very hopeful that his life will improve. He wants to improve and grow in his business, in order to be able to have a family in the future and to give them all his efforts' fruits.
