Carlos, 49, is married, has an elementary education and is responsible economically for three dependents, one of which is his son and, the other two, his granddaughters. Carlos earns a living in agriculture and grows potatoes, beans, peas and carrots. He produces the crops on his own land which is located in the Tolapampa Tiraque Community, 10 kms east of a village named Tíraque.

Carlos says he is a hard-working, responsible person who wants to get ahead economically. To that end, he is requesting investment capital to buy organic fertilizer to continue with crop production. This is so he can improve his income and the quality of life of his dependents.
