A loan of $1,500 helped build a house.

Juan's story

Juan is married and has 4 children. He is from a town called Melga, but came to the tropics of Cochabamba looking for better opportunities for his life. In Melga, production from potato farming was reduced dramatically due to changes in the climate (which are difficult to control). For this reason, he decided to leave everything behind and go to the tropics.

Over time, with a lot of work and effort, he bought some farmland. He now works farming pineapple. The loan that he is seeking is for building a house and will allow him to improve his quality of life. He is striving for these goals together with the support of his wife, who helps him every day with his work.
