Juan Carlos's story

Sr. Juan Carlos is 20 years old. His family is composed of five members, his parents and two younger siblings who are still dependents. He has few economic resources and lives in the town of Mizque. He has worked as a farmer since he was very young. For the past three years he has produced onions, potatoes and beans to feed his family; he sells the surplus at the same market as other merchants in the population.

Now he needs a loan of 10,000 BOB to buy seeds, fertilizer and agrochemicals in order to increase production. In this way he will earn more income and improve the living conditions of his entire family.
