A loan of $1,450 helped to build a house.


Jose's story

José, 34, is from a modest family of five males and three females. He has few economic resources so he cultivates very small pieces of land. He lives in the community of Yunguillas Alta in the town of Mizque in the department of Cochabamba. He has worked in agriculture and livestock for 16 years. He grows and sells potatoes, beans, and peas to feed his family, and sells the rest to the merchants in the same community, Mizque.

José is a very respected person in his community because of his dedication to his job and for being responsible for the education and well-being of his whole family.

José needs a loan to build his house. Because they're a large family, he needs rooms to improve his family's living conditions.
