A loan of $1,500 helped to buy farmland.


Tomas's story

Tomas, 34, has been married to Carmen for 12 years. They’ve lived in Colomi community, Duraznos Pampa for more than 8 years. They have two dependent children who are attending elementary school. Tomas and his wife are a humble family who work in agriculture. They earn income selling potatoes and peppers during the year and his wife also makes cheese from milk produced by her three dairy cows; she also has three bullocks. This is how they pay for their children’s schooling.

Tomas needs money to pay for a piece of farmland that he was unable to get from other entities because it was very difficult; they had many requirements and besides the savings they had were insufficient. The seller of the land gave them a time frame in which they had to pay or lose the land. They now hope that with help from this loan they will buy the land and improve their quality of life like he so wishes.
