A loan of $600 helped to build his house.


Gualberto's story

Gualberto and his wife live in the community of Colomi; he’s 25-years-old and has lived with his spouse for more than five years. They have a little boy who attends school. They are independent economically. They work in agriculture planting a 1.5 hectare parcel of land inherited from his parents. He produces potato and ‘papaliza’ [a tuber] rotating his crops; he has experience in this line of work. He also owns four head of cattle: three dairy cows and one calf. Gualberto needs to finish building his house which is why he came to request a loan to finish the finishing touches on his house since he used the savings he had to buy farm supplies and for his house’s construction. Lastly, Gualberto and his wife felt happy to have the opportunity of accessing credit and also to be able to count on support from the institution in order to be able to finish building their house.
