Justo has been married for several years. They have lived for 11 years in the tropics of Cochabamba, in the community of San Miguel in the municipality of Entre Ríos. Justo is from the province of Chiu-Bustillo in the department of Cochabamba, one of the poorest places in Bolivia. He came from his community, like the majority of people, looking for better opportunities in life. In his region, production decreased due to climate changes, difficult to control, and production was falling short every time, which is why he decided to go to the tropics. With the passing of time, and with much work and effort he bought his agricultural plot. The loan he is requesting is for the upkeep of his agricultural products such as plots of citrus fruits, bananas and avocados. In this way, he will be able to improve his quality of life. His wife also always collaborates in the activities. They have three children that are still in school.
