A loan of $1,175 helped to buy potato plants and organic fertilizer.

Nicolas's story

Nicolas is 43 years old and in a civil union. He reached primary school and has four economically dependent children. He lives in his own rustic style home that he constructed with local material and clay. His home is located in the community of Tíraque.

He works in agriculture where he produces agricultural products. He produces 150 loads of potatoes, 40 loads of oca, and 17 loads of oats, and all these agricultural products are cultivated on an area of 3.5 hectares.

These count on irrigation because of flooding. With that understanding, he is forced to apply for operating capital to buy potato seeds and organic fertilizer. In this way, he can better his income in the future and at the same time, better the lives of his economic dependents.
