A loan of $775 helped to buy a cord of onions.


Julio's story

Julio, 54, is in a common-law marriage, has a three-year-old son, and lives with his family in the department of Sololá. He says that he buys and sells vegetables. He pays per cord (0.0715 hectares) for the vegetables and later sells them by the quintal in the Sololá market. He has been operating his business for 15 years to generate cash to pay household expenses and says he is happy with his work. He also farms, and that income supplements the family budget. So Julio has applied for a loan of Q 6000 to buy a cord of onions. His biggest dream is to buy more farmland.
