Vicente is 37 years old, he is not married, but he lives with his partner. He completed elementary school, he owns his home - which is located in the community of Tiraque- and he has three dependants, his three sons.

He plants these crops in his own field, an area of 4 hectares located in his community. With this loan, he will buy organic compost and potato seeds. Once he will harvest his products, Vicente will increase his profits, as well as quality of life for his children.
