A loan of $1,450 helped to buy land.


Carlos Juan's story

Carlos lives in the agrarian syndicate Colorido-Ichilo, which is part of the Santa Cruz region of the border of Cochabamba, which he managed with a great deal of effort. He lives alone and works in agriculture. He is growing citrus fruit (1/2 hectare), rice (1/2 hectare) and has 15 cows which he sells at market.

The customer wants to increase his cattle production as it is already generating good economic income. To do this he needs the current loan so that he can buy agricultural land at a low price. If the customer couldn't have this loan he would not be able to fulfil his objectives and could not improve his quality of life. It should also be noted that Carlos is very dedicated to his work.
