Rosalío's story

Rosalío, 27, is married and has 4 beautiful children, 2 girls and 2 boys. The family lives in Sololá.
Rosolio has a farming business that he has operated for 10 years in the small rural town where he lives. He grows onions and carrots. He learned farming from his parents and his knowledge of this hard, decent work provides a steady income for his own family. Rosalio says that he and his wife are a team: She has a business making and selling traditional clothing and their combined income covers their expenses.
Rosalia is applying for a Q5,500 loan that he will use to buy supplies for growing onions and carrots.
For the future, he wants to improve his house and provide a better quality of life for his children.
