A loan of $1,450 helped to buy chicken manure and potato seeds.

Roman's story

Roman, 58, is a widow, but currently lives with his second partner. He made it through primary school. He lives in his own house and he has two small children who are economically dependent on him. He works in agriculture. He grows potatoes, broad beans, peas, and barley on his land which uses flood irrigation. His fields are in the Minas Pampa community, in the town of Tíraque, approximately 77 kilometers from Cochabamba. Roman and his partner say that they want to continue increasing their agricultural production, and this is why they see the need to apply for funds to invest in chicken manure and certified potato seeds. These are important supplied to get a better harvest and that way get more income to improve his family's quality of life.
