A loan of $1,175 helped to buy seeds.

Cristobal's story

Cristobal has worked in agriculture since he was young, when his father initiated him into the business, and he has been gaining experience through the years. He has dedicated the rest of his life to this business, which supports his family.

His children worked with him and now they are all economically independent. After the death of his wife, he relies on help to prepare the land and produce the crops. His oldest grandson, who is still in school, helps him with this.

He is a hard-working man who grows potatoes, onions, carrots, and garlic. His fields are located in Parotani and are characterized by soil rich in minerals and moisture that favor the growth of these types of products, which are in high demand in the city of Cochabamba.

Cristobal requests the loan to buy seeds, so that he can earn income that will allow him to improve his quality of life.
