A loan of $1,300 helped to build his house.

Daniel's story

Daniel is 21 years old, and he has been living together with Clementina for 5 years. They both finished primary school. They have 2 young daughters. They live in Colomi, in the Palta Loma community, toward the north side of Escuelita. Daniel and his partner are a humble, low income family. They are farmers. During the year their income is seasonal, selling potatoes, oca, and papaliza [tubers similar to potatoes]. They plant on land they inherited from their parents, 1.5 hectares; they also have 2 milk cows and 2 cattle for fattening; this is how they make a living. Daniel and his wife came to consult about a loan they needed to build a house, because the house they live in is in bad shape and they need an improvement. They want a better house so they can be more secure, and they also mention that they would like to get married.
