A loan of $1,450 helped to buy organic manure and potato seeds.

Victor's story

VÍctor, 53, lives in the community of Palca Grande. He’s single and earns income growing potatoes and oca [a tuber] on a three-hectare parcel located in the community of Palca Grande; he has 25 years’ experience in this line of work.

Víctor needs capital to buy agricultural supplies like organic manure and potato seeds. He used his savings to buy the farmland. Víctor comments that he’ll use the capital to buy the organic manure in a timely fashion and will plant a larger surface area to earn higher income which in the long-run will make it possible for him to make improvements to the house he lives in at present.
