A loan of $1,500 helped to buy supplies for his banana farm.


Felipe's story

Felipe, 53, lives in Sindicato Puerto Todos Santos, about 20 kilometers from the town of Villa Tunari in the province of Chapare in the city of Cochabamba.

Felipe's a farmer on his own farm located where he lives. Felipe used to live in the town of Arque, but 20 years ago he had to go to Sindicato Puerto Todos Santos because he didn't have enough income to support his family. He left all his belongings, picked himself up alone, and took a new path in life. He began with nothing and now has two agricultural plots.

The loan Felipe is requesting is for his banana farm and to support it so he'll be able to have a better income for his standard of living and help his family, the most important thing he has.
