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


Filomen's story

Filomen is in a common law marriage and has three children. They have lived within Cochabamba tropics for years; for 12 years in the town of Entre Rios. Filomen is originally from the San Jose Zudañez Chuquisaca province, one of the poorest areas of Bolivia. He came from the community of San Jose, like most people, to look for a way to earn a living. Production is low in his community because of the climate change and each time the production decreases. He decided to move to the tropical area and bought a plot of farmland with great effort and sacrifice. Now he raises citrus (mandarin oranges). He will use the money from this loan to build a house. This way he will be able to improve his quality of life. His wife has always been helpful.
