Sabasta's story

Sra. Sabasta is a single, 30 year old person. She has a primary school education. Currently she does not have dependents. Her principal source of income is from farming. She grows the following crops every year: 76 loads of potatoes, 20 loads of oca (an edible tuber) and 12 loads of broad beans (green). These crops are produced on her parents’ farming land at no cost at all. The farmland covers an area of approximately 4 hectares, which are irrigated and flooded. It is located near the town of Tíraque.

Sabasta lives in her parents’ home, a rustic structure which has potable water and electricity. She says that she is a hardworking and responsible person who wants to succeed economically in life. Consequently she finds that she needs to request operating capital in order to purchase construction materials so that she can improve her dwelling and also her and her family’s quality of life.
