A loan of $1,450 helped to buy papaya plantings.


Sabino's story

Sabino, 47, is a hardworking person from the Quillacollo area. He spent a big part of his youth working and studying until he became a mid-level technician. He married when he was young and has five dependents who are currently at different stages of their education. To improve his income he moved with the whole family to the tropics of Cochabamba, where he was well received because of his knowledge and hard work on his farmland. Previously Sabino worked with a variety of institutions and didn't take care of his home and land. He no longer works with other institutions; he devotes himself completely to taking care of his land. This is why Sabino's requesting a loan to buy papaya plantings. He's going to improve the plants on his land and his crop so he can continue to help his family close up.
