Esteban's story

Esteban, 30, lives in a common-law marriage and has five dependent children. He has an elementary school education and has lived in a remote community in the north of Colomi for 13 years.

Esteban's a farmer and he sells potatoes and locoto peppers. He grows part of them on his own land, half a hectare that he got from his parents; he grows the rest on a plot of land he rents for 1,600 bolivianos [BOB] for two years.

Currently Esteban needs a loan for 10,200 bolivianos to build an affordable home so he can make sure his family has a better future.
