Hilarion's story

Hilarión, 44, has been married to Adriana for 7 years. Both attended elementary school. They have three dependent children who attend school. The family lives in the rural, 2ndo Aguirre, community in south Colomi. Hilarión and his wife are very hardworking, humble people.

They earn income by means of potatoes and lima bean sales. They grow part of them on their own land and part on land inherited from their parents. They requested a loan because they were short on money to buy farm supplies like fowl, guano and other agrochemical supplies because they had reduced resources to keep their children in school and they also state that other financial institutions made it very difficult for them to get a loan because they had many requirements.

Hilarión and his wife felt very happy for having gotten what they most needed and now will be able to plant on larger acreage to earn better future income.
