A loan of $1,500 helped to buy farm land.

Alberto's story

Señor Alberto is 21 years old, single, and has only a primary school education. He lives in Tablamayu, a rural community of Chullpani, toward the north of Colomi.

Señor Alberto makes a living through agricultural production by selling potatoes, ulluco, broad beans, and yams. He also has cattle: three for fattening, two dairy cows, and two calves. Thus he maintains his finances through his work for food production.

He needs a loan to buy one hectare of land and be able to increase his agricultural production, thus generating more income in the future. For this reason he asks for the loan since what he saved was invested in the purchase of agricultural supplies. He says that he is happy to be able to have access to the requested loan, and is excited to buy the land. He is certain that buying the land is a good investment because it will increase his production capacity.
