Rene's story

Rene lives in the Mizque community and has three dependent children. Rene is a farmer and currently works some small parcels of land that his father left him. His family recently faced a sad event with their last harvest. There was a natural disaster, a frost, and his crops were not very productive. This disaster made his income farm income fail. He does not have an irrigation system, so his production is seasonal

Rene is a very liked and respected person in his community, because of his dedication to his lovey young children and to his work. All this, despite being sick, at times he must work shifts on other farms in order to support his family. He is asking for a loan so that he can buy potato seeds and compost so he can improve his production and income, provide a better quality of life for his children, and allow them to go to school under better conditions.
