A loan of $1,500 helped to buy chicken manure.

Clemente's story

Celemente was born in the Minas Pampas community in the Tiraque province, Cochabamba department. He currently lives in his community with his family (Clemente appears in the photo with his family).

His house is rustic: it's constructed of mud and has a tile roof with mud plastering. The community where he lives is three kilometers east of the town of Tiraque. The economic activity there is agriculture, which is growing tubers and grains. The production is seasonal in the high regions of the high valley.

The loan that he is requesting is to buy chicken manure. Clemente is interested in bettering himself and improving his income in the coming years. His whole family does the agricultural work. In some cases his neighbors help with the planting and harvesting, as is their custom.

The previous loan helped him quite a bit with the purchase of manure and livestock. That is why he now wants to increase his production and to buy more manure.
