A loan of $475 helped to buy supplies for growing green beans and carrots.

Juan's story

Juan is 65 years old and lives with his family in the town of Sololá in the department of Sololá. He has 7 children. Four of them are married and no longer live with him, two of them aged 11 and 4 go to the community primary school and his 13-year-old daughter helps her mum around the house.

Juan makes a living growing green beans and carrots. He gets his income from this and also works as a gardener.

Juan needs a loan of Q.3,500 to buy supplies for growing his green beans and carrots (seeds, organic manure, fertilizer and other items).

Juan's dream is to replace the roof on his house, as he says it is not in a good condition.
