A loan of $1,450 helped to buy material for fine workmanship in order to finish the construction of his house.

Octavian's story

Octavian is 45 years old, married, studied through primary school, lives in his own house, and has a dependent son.

His main economic activity is agriculture, growing potatoes, achojcha [light green vegetable, slightly ribbed, and hollow] and choclo (corn) on his own land that is located in the community of Conda Arriba of the municipality of Pocona, approximately 145 km from the city of Cochabamba. Also, during harvesting season, he lends his services to transport loads of vegetables with his own truck from his community to the city of Cochabamba generating an additional income.

And finally Octavian says that he has the desire to excel and to this end he sees the necessity of asking for capital to invest for residential construction (fine workmanship) as a way to improve the quality of life for his son.
